Supporting the Marin Čilić Foundation’s Gem Set Croatia tournament


Through Zagrebačka banka in Croatia, we supported the Marin Čilić Foundation in its goal to help young people explore and achieve their passions through education, sport and encouragement programmes – an initiative started by famous Croatian tennis player Marin Čilić.

Our combined support contributed to the organisation of the Foundation’s Gem Set Croatia tournament, where 3,000 spectators gathered to watch celebrated sporting Croatians compete. Funds raised went towards the construction of a multifunctional sports field at the Petar Zoranić Elementary School in Stankovci, a town in the hinterland of Zadar, and helped the Foundation continue its mission – which, so far, has seen four school playgrounds built, 103 scholarships awarded, six school laboratories renovated, and participation from over 5,000 children.

I am proud that this sports event is becoming a tradition that gathers many participants, because only together can we enable every child to realise their dreams. I am convinced that the playground in Stankovci will be full of children who will have the opportunity to play sports. I would like to thank to Zagrebačka banka and UniCredit for recognising our work."

Zagrebačka banka wants to empower its communities to progress by supporting projects intended for children and young people. We recognised the same values in our long-term partner the Marin Čilić Foundation, whose hard work enables children and young people to realise their full potential. The Gem Set Croatia project proves that only together can we lay the foundations for the success of young people, and our celebrated athletes – recognised around the world for their achievements – can be role models and inspiration for young people.”
