In June 2017, the tennis star Karolína Plíšková founded her endowment fund, through which she regularly contributes considerable sums of money for a good cause.

The first event took place on 11th June at Cibulka in Prague, where a whole range of personalities from the world of sports as well as culture met for a charity tournament. Two hundred kids arrived as well, and at the end of the event Karolína handed over a check for 200,000 CZK to Dr Jan Starý, the head of the oncology center in Motol.

In the future, Karolína would especially like to contribute through her endowment fund to the field of diagnostics and treatment of brain tumors in children and to the purchase of chemicals and consumable supplies for the Laboratory Centre of the Department of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague and Motol University Hospital.
