End-of-year solidarity initiatives - € 31,550
Our contribution, € 31,550 to 11 non-profit associations
At the end of each year, the UniCredit Foundation launches an initiative for UniCredit employees to sell any gifts they receive and donate the money raised to non-profit associations
The UniCredit Foundation supported UniCredit in the Group's initiative where gifts received by employees, from outside and during the end-of-year festivities, were put up for sale for charity on the Group's intranet online marketplace. This initiative raised € 5,109.90.

Again last year, the solidarity initiative could count on the generosity of colleagues who chose to donate the money raised from gifts to the UniCredit Foundation, which committed to doubling the overall total of funds received. This is another example that demonstrates the generosity of UniCredit employees for solidarity and volunteering.
While the donation of gifts was driven by company regulation, there was a high level of support for donating the equivalent amount to the UniCredit Foundation. Once again this year, there was a great deal of support from colleagues who, although not required to comply with internal regulations, were happy to join the initiative and donate what they had received. This initiative raised € 12,845.28 which was doubled by the UniCredit Foundation to € 25,690.56.
The 2020/2021 edition of the Solidarity gift also received donations from UniCredit's supplier companies. During the holiday season, these companies accepted a proposal from the UniCredit Group to make a modest donation to support the UniCredit Foundation's projects. This initiative raised € 750.
The success of the three initiatives is clearly due to the participation of colleagues and is reflected in the total sum of € 31,550.46.
