All operating costs of the GOOD ANGEL system are covered from funds separate from the financial donations received. The costs of the launch and operation of the System for the first few years, amounting to CZK 25 million, are paid out of the private funds of the founders, Petr Sýkora and Jan Černý, which they generated from the sale of the PAPIRIUS company. The founders of the foundation, members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board, and their family members are engaged FREE OF CHARGE.
All of the financial donations received from Good Angels in a single month are fully distributed among the beneficiaries as early as on the first business day of the following month. Compliance with all financial rules governing the functioning of the GOOD ANGEL system, which are set out in the Code of Ethics, is regularly audited.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our community of partners for their tireless support of our work.

Financial Partners of GOOD ANGEL
Jaroslava Valová, Founder and CEO of SIKO KOUPELNY & KUCHYNĚ
“The GOOD ANGEL project has won us over at SIKO KOUPELNY & KUCHYNĚ, not only because it helps families in challenging life situations, which could happen to anyone of us without prior warning, but also because of its meticulously designed system of targeted support. I firmly believe that this fact will contribute in a major way to the successful recruiting of many more angels. In this way, GOOD ANGEL challenges an increasing number of people to reconsider their value system, and thus also plays a part in raising the ethical standards of society at large.”
Václav Dejčmar, Investor and Economist; aside from financial and private-equity projects associated with RSJ group, he is also the co-owner of a modelling agency, of the business accelerator TechSquare, and of the non-profit center for contemporary art DOX Prague
“To me, forging a transparent connection between the money of donors and the stories of beneficiaries was a fantastic idea. GOOD ANGEL not only helps those in need, but also teaches empathy to the general public by drawing attention to the concrete fateful experiences of real people.”
Igor Vida, CEO of Raiffeisenbank a. s.
“I take genuine pleasure in the existence of GOOD ANGEL, which has brought us an efficient system for helping people financially who find themselves in an extremely difficult life situation. As a banker, I also have great respect for their financial transparency, embodied in their slogan ‘To the last cent’. I am happy, and not a little proud, to say that many of our employees have become Good angels, and more of them are joining their ranks every month. Beyond that, we have also been successful in spreading the word among our clients. I am pleased to see that others find ‘Good angelhood’ as deeply meaningful as I do myself.”
Jiřina Nepalová, Founder and CEO of RENOMIA, a. s.
“We at RENOMIA consider it an honor to be part of the GOOD ANGEL project, which has allowed us for four years already to help families with children in difficult life situations.
Things we particularly appreciate about our collaboration with GOOD ANGEL: the idea of one helping another, peer-to-peer, along with the targeted character and transparency of the entire project. I believe that these characteristics in particular set it apart as a unique opportunity to do charity, which has attracted, and will continue to attract, many Good angels.”
Štěpán Lacina, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Accredio, a.s.
“How could I not support GOOD ANGEL… I find that the project has no weaknesses whatsoever. May all Good angels be able to bring more and more people in need under their wings…”
Veronika and Nicolas Lassiouve
“Because GOOD ANGEL is a wonderful Czecho-Slovak project – quite like our life together as a couple. What a marvelous feeling to be able to lend a helping hand to a true angel…”
Zbyněk Frolík, Dipl. Ing., Founder of Linet spol.s.r.o.
“What an immense pleasure it is for anyone, regardless of their standing in life, to make others happy! A sorrow shared is a sorrow halved; by contrast, when you share happiness, you actually increase the amount of happiness in the world. If you want to feel wealthy, just tally up all of the wonderful things you have that money can’t buy. These are not ideas I’ve come up with myself, but long-held deep truths. I wish the GOOD ANGEL project to ‘metastasize’ more strongly than all of the cancer in the world.”
“Oncological disease not only immensely affects the life of an individual, but also means suffering for the whole family, which, in addition to the disease itself, has to overcome stress arising from financial distress. In such a situation, each and every one of us would like to help. When in search of the right way, we are happy to meet such an organization as GOOD ANGEL. They know who needs help, and what’s more, they pass on 100 % of the money collected from donors. Do we need to hear more?
We can only wish that, thanks to the relief of financial distress, there are more and more cured and happy families.”
Ondřej Fryc, Businessman and Investor
“I have a disabled sister, and I understand perfectly well what an immense strain it is for the family to take care of the ill. I am glad that GOOD ANGEL enabled me to help.”
Lenka Cvejnová, decoDoma, CEO
“We at decoDoma believe that helping those who are less fortunate is the obvious thing to do, and should be an everyday part of our lives. Many of us have personally experienced how taxing it is to care for a seriously ill or handicapped family member. Donating to those who have suddenly fallen on hard times is among the simplest things we can do for each other. And GOOD ANGEL makes this even easier! To the dear folks at the foundation, I say: keep it up! You have our complete trust, and deserve the immense appreciation we have for your work. We’ll root for you in the years to come.”
Zdeněk Havelka, CPI Property Group, CEO
“We are happy and grateful that we have been able to support the GOOD ANGEL foundation for the past three years. It is great knowing exactly where one’s donation goes to help, down to the last crown. And it is our great pleasure to spread the word among our business partners and employees, many of whom have become Good Angels themselves.”
Tomáš Ságl, Producer and Caterer
“The idea behind GOOD ANGEL always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling, and I am overjoyed to see how many people in need receive help from the foundation, and how competently it dispenses that help.
I also sense that the foundation’s staff is hugely engaged and committed. In my view, the work they’re doing cuts to the chase, fills a void, answers a need. You can see a youthful, new way of thinking in many of the decisions and steps that are being made, which are always spot-on. No pointless meetings, no idle chatter – as the people of GOOD ANGEL go about their work, they keep their eye on the ball and thus they accomplish the most ambitious goals. I gladly lend my support to this kind of activity, as it truly makes sense.”
Mario Drosc, Manager, Mentor, Coach, Advisor, Innovator and Investor
“Why do I support GOOD ANGEL? Because I am myself so lucky that I can. Because Andrej Kiska and Petr Sýkora turned GOOD ANGEL into what they are themselves – a harmonic blend between the rationality of the business sphere and deep sympathy for other people with the aim of helping them. The rational side manifests itself in efficiency, transparency and in the principle of distributing the donations “down to the last cent”. The sympathy, among other things, consists in the ability of disencumbering GOOD ANGEL from competiti-veness and ego, which often burden even charity projects. GOOD ANGEL is simply what I myself want to be. Which means that there is a bit of laziness on my part – if that were not the case, and if there was nothing to support, I would have to create something like this on my own. I am glad that better people have done it better. I am grateful for the opportunity to assist them in their mission and to help GOOD ANGEL.”
Petr Šmída, Founding Partner Enern
“My wife Pavla and I are very happy to be able to make a small contribution towards improving the lives of families in serious difficulties… And we would like to thank Good angel and all of its people for this opportunity.”
