The engagement of KGHM and the support offered to local communities for cultural, artistic and sporting events stems from the goals defined in our Business and CSR Strategies. The Polish Copper Foundation also functions for the benefit of local communities and supports artists and cultural institutions.
KGHM supports both professional and amateur sport.
(KGHM sponsors the football club Zagłębie Lubin, MKS Cuprum Lubin (volleyball), three hand ball teams (MKS Zagłębie Lubin, SPR Chrobry Głogów and MSPR Siódemka Legnica), the Polish tennis players Łukasz Kubot and Michał Przysiężny, hockey teams in Sudbury and Kamloops in Canada, the Canadian football team Kamloops Broncos, and an award-winning Synchronised Swimming Club in Sudbury.
KGHM also supports children's and adolescents' sport. The key project are: Young Footballer Academy, lead by KGHM Zagłębie Lubin; High School Athletics – a periodic sporting event for youth from the Robinson mine community; football classes for children organised together with the Ganamos Todos foundation for the Sierra Gorda mine community in Chile.
In order to promote sport, KGHM aids both local and international sporting events. These are, for instance, the Piasts Race in Jakuszyce in Poland, the ALS golf tournament in Kamloops in Canada, and a charity golf tournament in Sudbury in Canada.)
