Financial Gifts

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports select activities of Czech associations and compatriots living in the United States by provision of Financial Gifts. 

We are pleased to support dozens of projects of Czech compatriot organizations in the USA every year. We thank all Czech heritage associations, Sokols and Czech schools for their efforts to enhance Czech language and culture in the United States. 

The deadline for the application for the financial gift from the Czech Republic for the given year is July 31.

The application form is online in both the Czech and English languages. The printed and signed application must be sent to the Embassy of the Czech Republic. There is a simple guideline regarding how to apply for a financial gift:
