Italy - call for Regions Carta E 2019

Italy - call for Regions Carta E 2019

The winners of the Call for the Regions Carta E 2019

 

The winners of the "Call for the Regions - Carta E 2019" have been selected. The Call has been promoted by UniCredit Foundation and focuses on supporting projects for children.

The 7 regions (North West, Lombardy, North East, Centre North, Centre, South and Sicily) , UniCredit territorial organisation structures  that manage the banking relationship at local level,  played a crucial role in the project's success. The regions were asked to select a project short list. Then UniCredit Foundation, assisted by a dedicated panel of experts, chose three initiatives per region, awarded one of them with a prize of 30 thousand euros and the other two with two prizes of 10 thousand euros.

The regions assessed the needs of local communities and proposed a number of projects focused on children and adolescents (up to 18 years) to UniCredit Foundation to participate in the final selection phase. An essential requirement was that the Onlus proponent was established before 31December 2017. The panel of experts gave precedence to projects related to the social priorities of local communities that had a positive impact in the medium and long-term.

The winning projects included initiatives for the "humanisation" of pediatric wards, to support for disabled children,  children in vulnerable situations and the promotion of a conscious use of new technologies.

Once again, this project was made possible thanks to UniCredit Carta E. The credit card that makes an ethical contribution launched by UniCredit in 2005.  Through its particular mechanism, UniCredit donates part of its commission - equal to 2% of each purchase made with the card, which goes to social initiatives supported by UniCredit at national level. Thanks to these resources, UniCredit Group has so far allocated approximately € 14 million to charity funds and financed over 370 social solidarity projects at local and national level.

In the coming months, UniCredit Foundation will work on extending this approach to the entire international scope of the Group, with new initiatives for children.
