Through the VIRTUS Award, established in 2007, Trag Foundation has been awarding for 16 years individuals and companies that have contributed to the development of the communities in which they operate, presenting them to the general public in order to inspire others to take part in similar initiatives. There has been a certain shift in the very understanding of the idea of philanthropy, which is being confirmed by the fact that philanthropic giving is constantly increasing, as well as that Serbia jumped from the bottom of the World Giving Index to the enviable 27th position in the previous two years.

The VIRTUS Award for 2022 is presented with the financial support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
