In recent years, the value of donated materials ranges between fifteen and twenty thousand euros per year.
Hop na Grad
Hop na Grad which came to life in the spring of 2017, is a charity running event, of which the main donor and co-organizer is Založba Rokus Klett.

The event also promotes a healthy lifestyle and connects people who want to give back to the community from which they come from. You can read more about it HERE.
Purchase of the ECMO machine for the Paediatric Clinic ICU
In cooperation with the organizers of the Hop na Grad charity run, the SBC – Slovenian Business Club, the club connecting Slovenian entrepreneurs and socially engaged individuals and companies, we raised money in March 2020 for the purchase of the ECMO machine, a device urgently needed in the Intensive Care Unit of the Paediatric Clinic. With this device, they will be able to help the critically ill patients, both children and adults – even those who find themselves in critical condition due to covid-19, the disease caused by the corona virus.
Solidarity during the corona virus epidemic
During the closure of all educational institutions due to the corona virus epidemic, Založba Rokus Klett provided full-time access to all its electronic and interactive materials to all teachers and students of both primary and secondary schools, regardless of whether otherwise they use the Rokus materials or materials by other publishing houses. We also provided 6th to 9th grade students and their parents and teachers with free access to the special editions of workbooks and exercise books in pdf format.
Together in Solidarity – 178 computers for children to use for remote learning
At the initiative of the companies Založba Rokus Klett and Modrijan izobraževanje, in April 2020 in just two days’ time companies and individuals raised funds to purchase 178 computers for socially disadvantaged children. Thanks to a donation worth almost 63 thousand euros, students from a total of 59 Slovenian primary schools received computers with which they will be able to participate in distance learning. Most donors are companies and individuals who are members of the SBC – Club of Slovenian Entrepreneurs, and in addition to them, other companies also participated in the charity campaign. The campaign was launched through the Fundacija ROK – Helping Children Spread Their Wings, which has helped gifted children from socially disadvantaged families for many years, and is part of the broader Together in Solidarity initiative, through which economic organizations and associations collect computers and tablets for children who would otherwise not have been able to attend remote classes.
Charity competition and book on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the publishing house
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Založba Rokus Klett organized a charity literary competition for primary school students from 4th to 9th grade.

All the proceeds from the sale of the book were donated to the Clinical Department of Paediatric Surgery and Intensive Care at the Ljubljana University Medical Centre.

Every autumn from 2004 to 2010, we organized a charity auction of the best photographs created for the photo competitions of the National Geographic Slovenija and National Geographic Junior magazines. The funds raised were donated in full to the Premature Babies Association, the Ljubljana Maternity Hospital for the purchase of an ultrasound machine for pregnant women and a computer-aided CTG machine, and the Slovenian Association of Friends of Youth for a project of free learning assistance for primary and secondary school students.
