Call for Europe 2020 - the winning projects
UniCredit Foundation supports European local projects to help children with 360,000 euros
"Call for Europe" initiative supports 48 projects across 12 UniCredit countries.
In December 2020, UniCredit Foundation launched the second "Call for Europe" initiative with the aim to identify and support social projects helping children in the different European countries where UniCredit operates outside of Italy. The Group's banks were asked to provide UniCredit Foundation with a shortlist of relevant local projects in each country by the end of February 2021 and an expert jury appointed by the Foundation selected the winning initiatives to be granted a total of 30,000 euros per country split among the winning projects.
48 projects were selected to receive the Foundation's support this time across 12 UniCredit countries: Germany, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. This included initiatives focused on supporting children's education and learning, fostering inclusion, and providing dedicated facilities for their activities and health needs.
Maurizio Beretta, Chairman of the UniCredit Foundation, commented: "The Call for Europe initiative allows us to continue to raise awareness of children's needs in our territories across Europe further encouraging all our local banks to actively monitor and engage with relevant solidarity projects in their communities. This is in line with our shared goal of supporting the needs of all the local communities where we operate and constantly working to generate a positive social impact in our countries."
