The PKF Foundation / administrative authorities

The PKF Foundation was established in 1994 with the aim to provide all-round support to the orchestra (former Prague Philharmonia). It was set up by the conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, the composer Petr Eben and the pianist Ivan Moravec. The Foundation grants finance for, among other things, purchase of musical instruments, extension and improvement of the orchestral inventory and other assets necessary for the orchestra’s functioning. The Foundation does not strive to make a profit but to acquire money for carrying out its mission. It obtains contributions from the Foundation Investment Fund and donations. 

All the finance gained is earmarked for purchasing accessory equipment and, possibly, musical instruments. At the present time, however, the Foundation’s funds only make it possible to cover the costs for musical instruments’ accessories, such as, for instance, strings and horsehair for string instruments, and reeds and ligatures for wind instruments. The PKF Foundation is administered by the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board. Its President is Prof. Jiří Bělohlávek and the Chairman of the Board of Directors is Ing. Ondřej Žižka. 

In supporting the orchestra and its sections, the Foundation works similarly to the Philharmonia Club. Under certain terms, its patrons and benefactors can reduce their tax base by writing off the donated amount.
