TVN & TVN Foundation

TVN – the leading broadcaster in Poland, owned by Discovery – is deeply committed to bringing about positive change and supporting disadvantaged communities.

We support various causes, and partner with numerous charities on an ongoing basis. In 2001, we launched the TVN Foundation. To date, the Foundation has raised over $70 million in aid to improve the lives and health of Polish people in need, providing assistance to almost 26,000 individuals. An area of particular focus for the TVN Foundation has always been treating and rehabilitating sick children.

The Foundation carries out renovations and other works in medical facilities across the country, as well as purchases ambulances and medical equipment. In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, TVN doubled down and undertook several initiatives, including donating almost $2 million to help with coronavirus testing in hospitals and other institutions, airing free of charge advertisements for small business owners, and hosting charity concerts. In 2021, the TVN Foundation began the construction of the Psychiatry Clinic for Children and Youth within the largest children’s hospital in Poland – the Children’s Memorial Health Institute in Warsaw. At the moment, the main goal of the TVN Foundation is to support Children Psychiatry.
