Charitable Activities

As a socially responsible company, FPC believes it is very important to engage in social and charitable activities and support projects in culture, education, healthcare, sports, and other social initiatives.

The Company’s charitable activities include supporting children in need of expensive treatment and medicines, children in orphanages, providing social support to employees with children suffering from severe or chronic diseases or requiring costly treatment, helping large families, non-working retirees, veterans, disabled people and people in difficult life situations.

The Company’s financial and business activities have been significantly affected by the challenges of 2020. At the same time, the Company has been making every effort to prevent the coronavirus pandemic’s direct impact on its operating environment, prioritising the protection of its employees and passengers.

The Company promotes voluntary blood donation. FPC had held a charitable event, Donor Day, before coronavirus restrictions were imposed. The event has become a good tradition for FPC employees, and the number of donors grows every year. Funds collected through this event in 2020 were donated to the Podari Zhizn (Gift of Life) charity and used to finance treatment for 21-year-old Alina Zezyulina.

Starting from 2016, FPC has been delivering on its commitment to transport veterans of the Great Patriotic War (WWII), including disabled veterans, and their travelling companions to events celebrating the Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941–1945).

Since 1 January 2020, the Company has granted free transport in deluxe, first and second-class sleeping carriages and carriages with seats to veterans of the Great Patriotic War, including disabled veterans, and their travelling companions, for a total of RUB 4.2 million.

The total amount of funds directed by the Company towards charitable causes in 2020 was RUB 14.9 million.
