The name of the Foundation resulted from the tribute that we would like to pay to the Czech entrepreneur and philanthropist Josef Novak (1855-1906). Mr Novak was not only a very successful and innovative businessman in his time, who established the very first shopping centre in the country (Dum U Novaku in Vodickova street, Prague). But he was also a very emphatic and generous man. In his lifetime he supported.
It is our wish to follow in his footsteps of good will and we sincerely hope that together
we can help the ones in need the same way as his did.
