Datalab Sponsorships and Donations

At Datalab we take responsibility for the people and the space that surrounds us. Ever since our inception, we've been actively involved in the community by donating and offering sponsorships in line with our financial capabilities. We allocate 0.3% of annual profits for donations.

Datalab acutely respects the basic principles of social responsibility:

 

  • Fair and equal treatment of employees
  • Conducting business ethically and honestly
  • Respect of fundamental human rights
  • Responsible treatment of the environment
  • Fair conduct towards the local community and wider society

Our donations and efforts so far:

  • In 2015, Datalab made a donation in the amount of 7,400 EUR to the Malči Melič Youth Care Center for a summer vacation for children who live in the Center and have not had a safe and nurturing environment growing up. Our employees were happy to donate part of that amount voluntarily. This donation made it possible for them to enjoy a summer vacation at the seaside or in the mountains during the holidays.
  • In April 2014, we donated computers, servers, computer cases and hard drives to the Slovenian Sustainability Society Duh Časa as part of a humanitarian project.
  • In March 2014, we helped Mr. Boris Hebar purchase a basketball wheelchair, so that he can successfully continue his favorite sport, which provides a lot of inspiration in his life.
  • 2014 saw us supporting the student event University Programming Marathon again, where teams compete against each other, solving programming problems. The winning team also gets to compete the Central Europe Reginal Contest ACM ICPC.
  • In December 2013, Datalab was among a number of other companies that supported the 21. Managerial Concert in the Gallus Hall of the Culture and Congress Center Cankarjev dom.
  • In October 2013, the 15. Congress of Accounting Service Providers took place in the Wellness Park Laško Congress Center, where Datalab was a Platinum Sponsor of the event.
  • In May 2013, we enabled visitors to see the project/exhibition GOTO 1982 – Development of the Slovene Computer Culture free of charge and to participate in the associated program. Because the exhibition proved to be a huge success, it moved to the Technical Museum of Slovenia in Bistra, where it was on display from the end of June 2013.
  • At the end of May 2013, Banja Luka hosted the Mini Accounting Olympiad 2013, where Datalab was the general sponsor.
  • In June 2012, Datalab tehnologije, together with its business partners and many PANTHEON users, collected 7,677 EUR in three months during the fundraising event called “Embrace of the Ocean”, which helped send all sixty wards of the Malči Melič Youth Care Center to the seaside for an unforgettable vacation.
  • In April 2012, we supported an expedition of young mountaineers from the association FreeApproved. They spent a month in Alaska to ascend unclimbed and unnamed peaks, climb new routes, conduct first measurements of a glacier and to film a documentary called Aurora Polaris, which was subsequently shown in the Culture and Congress Center Cankarjev dom in November 2012.
  • In November 2011, we donated two computers to the kindergarten Tržič’s unit in Križe, so that the children there can get to know computer basics.
  • In May 2011, we donated funds to the Diving Association M3 Novo mesto, who organized the cleanup of the river Krka “EKO – SUB Krka 2011”, in order to support efforts to preserve the environment, which is one of our missions.
  • February 2010 saw us supporting the Primary School Helena Puhar in Kranj by donating ten computers with LCD screens and all other necessary equipment to support the children’s learning process.
  • In the summer of 2009, we donated a personal computer to the Work and Care Center Tonka Hočevar. The Center, which primarily cares for people with special needs, couldn’t afford a computer due to difficult financial circumstances. We sincerely hope that – with the help of our donation – they’ll be able to continue their noble work unimpeded.
  • We were a bronze-level sponsor for the field trip to the USA organized by the Association of Students of Informatics.
