Heineken launched the 3rd edition of “Heinken for Communities” program


Heineken Romania launched “Heineken for Communities” 2013, in partnership with CSR Nest Association, with the aim to support and develop local communities where Heineken is running activities.

The program targets NGOs and public institutions from Constanta, Craiova, Miercurea Ciuc and Targu Mures and is made under the form of a projects contest. The entered projects must fulfill some eligibility criteria and can be implemented in different domains (social, environment, culture, tourism, health and so on). An independent jury will designate 2 winners from each city, each of them receiving grants worth RON 50,000.

We are proud to launch the 3rd edition of Heineken for Communities program, in partnership with CSR Nest. Same as during the previous years, we support also for this edition the ambitious and innovative projects, that are built around our mission to create a sustainable business and contribute to developing the communities we are active in
