Through the Building the Future Foundation, CEMEX in the Czech Republic will support projects to promote education, research, and development, to protect the environment and its biodiversity, to improve housing and the infrastructure, and to provide backing for cultural and sports activities in the regions where the company operates. The Czech Republic is often plagued by floods that leave extreme devastation in their wake. At times of such disasters, the CEMEX foundation fund will be prepared to help.

The foundation is currently accepting applications for financial grants, with a deadline of April 16. Additional information on the foundation fund as well as details about applications for financial grants is available at www.budujemebudoucnost.cz (website in Czech).

CEMEX, throughout its global operations, engages in an ongoing dialogue in order to better understand the needs and concerns of the communities in which it operates. The company then leverages its core business strengths, including its institutional knowledge and experience, its employees' talent and time, and its social investments, to support the social and economic development of those communities. Specifically, CEMEX contributes to disaster relief; promotes employee volunteering; foster local environmental awareness; and support educational, cultural, and sports activities.
