Education stands for people, relationships
and a chance for a good life
We support children, teenagers, and teachers by providing them with equal access to valuable, quality education. We work with schools in order to create a diverse and welcoming environment for students to grow in.
We look for solutions, which can change the way we think about education in Poland. We build lasting partnerships and connect through expert dialogue. We strongly believe that we have the ability to inspire systemic changes, together.
Horizons Scholarship Program
We support students all across the country, who wish to study in the most inspiring high schools and technical schools in big cities. We promote social engagement, and give our scholars courage. We help them grow both at school and outside the school walls.
Roman Czernecki Prize
We award authors of the best publications on education - scientists, journalists and educators, who contribute to the debate on Polish education.
Education Inspiration Grant Program
We provide teachers from small towns with grants for educational projects. Together, we bring out the potential in secondary school students, we nurture their interests, and strengthen our teachers’ professional skills.
EFC Partner School
In partnership with school communities in small cities, we strive to create a hospitable working and learning environment. We prove that schools can be an important voice in building dialogue and local cooperation.

Together with the Polish Business Roundtable, we distinguish philanthropists and non-profit organizations that are committed to initiating bold and necessary social changes and that support those in need.

Prof. Roman Czernecki (1904-1986)
A dedicated and passionate educator. He organized clandestine education in Słupia Jędrzejowska during WWII. After the war, he founded the Szczekociny school. He later worked as head of the educational department in the Zielonogórskie province, rector of the Public College of Education in Gdańsk and lecturer at the Warsaw University of Technology. From the very beginning, his main goal was to support the educational development of young people, regardless of their material situation or where they come from. His work inspired the establishment of the EFC Foundation.more
