Fondazione Terzo Pilastro: the Sportello della Solidarietà issues grants up to 50 thousand euro

A permanent call for proposals to encourage social projects

Public and private non-profit organisations operating in Italy or Mediterranean countries may obtain grants up to €50.000 through a permanent call for proposals.  The Sportello della Solidarietà has been promoted by Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Italia e Mediterraneo for the purpose of encouraging and supporting the accomplishment of social projects based on the values of solidarity, mutual aid, social inclusion and the promotion of underprivileged groups. Applications for grants for projects concerning health, scientific research, aid to the underprivileged, education and art and culture may be submitted to the Sportello on a yearly basis only.

For the year 2016 the Foundation has decided to give priority to the projects addressing rare diseases (in the field of scientific research); socio-medical care for patients and support for their families; youth employment; training courses for the placement of disabled citizens held by organisations with an excellent track record in this field and, finally, the revival and enhancement of arts and crafts event through training courses.
