Our commitment 2023: scia Systems supports local nonprofits with a total of 5000 Euro
Supporting social and charitable projects is an important aspect of our corporate philosophy. As a globally active company, we know how important it is to maintain local ties and support the region where we work. That way we can help make Chemnitz and the surrounding area an attractive home for families, students and professionals. We are therefore proud to support small and large associations with a total of 5,000 euros.
Our employees have an active role in this process, as they are the only ones who can suggest organizations and projects that are worthy of support. Afterwards, a jury of colleagues decides which projects will be funded. For us, this kind of support is not just a way of showcasing our company, but an investment in the local quality of life.
The jury once again had a hard time deciding between the various projects this year. However, since the total amount was more than doubled compared to last year, the number of supported associations could also be increased.
500 € each will receive:
- ESV Lokomotive Chemnitz e. V., dept. Football for purchasing new jerseys for the D2 Juniors

Meanwhile, the sponsored clubs from last year have realized their projects. 500 euros each went to:
