On February 28, the crowdfunding campaigns initiated on For Funding in support of the 6 projects selected in the Community Foundation’s “Inclusive Restart” call for proposals concluded, and all of them reached their fundraising goals!
Through this call for proposals, the Foundation supports “systemic” initiatives aimed at reducing inequalities to promote the inclusive and sustainable recovery of communities (according to the principles of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda) following the emergency caused by Covid-19 (here is the article about the call for proposals). The organizations selected in the call for proposals launched their crowdfunding campaigns, and upon reaching a collection amount equal to 30% of the necessary project funding, the Foundation provided the remaining 70%. The decision to complement community crowdfunding with funding from the Foundation has proven to be strategic in promoting the culture of giving, especially in a historical moment of post-Covid reconstruction: a reconstruction of community bonds to make communities more cohesive through mutual support.
What are the projects? They are:
- #ApeOperosa by the Al Kharub Social Cooperative of Agrigento
- Educational Workshops by the Casa della Comunità Speranza Association of Mazara del Vallo
- Il Buon Samaritano by the San Giuseppe Parish of Castellammare del Golfo
- Infopoint Diffuso by the Community Cooperative Identità e Bellezza of Sciacca
- Ripartiamo Insieme by the Arcobaleno Social Cooperative of Valderice
- Sou e Prime Minister by the Farm Cultural Park Association of Favara
All campaigns related to the six projects have reached their goals, which means that they will soon materialize into activities for our community. From the seed to the tree, and soon the community will be able to reap the fruits.
