All projects selected for the “Call for Europe 2019 – Supporting Childhood” initiative are run by non-profit organisations focusing on supporting children and adolescents (age 0-18) in line with the priorities of each specific local community and with the aim of generating a positive social impact in the medium and long term.
The “Call for Europe 2019 – Supporting Childhood” initiative was launched in December 2019 by UniCredit Foundation and UniCredit Group. An expert jury appointed by the Foundation selected the winning initiatives to be granted a total of €500,000 split among the winners.
Maurizio Beretta, Chairman of the UniCredit Foundation, commented: “In line with our shared belief of always doing the right thing, the different banks of UniCredit Group in Europe have worked together with UniCredit Foundation to identify local projects focused on children and their needs. The role of our local colleagues in our various countries has been key in this initiative to select the right projects, making sure we provide support in line with the needs and circumstances of each community.”
44 projects have received the Foundation’s support across 12 Group countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
