Fondazione Cattolica Assicurazioni
Fondazione Cattolica Assicurazioni has used resources, energy and passion since 2006 to spread a new philosophy of intervention in the social sphere, in direct contact with the requests and needs of those who really need support, both economic and above all in planning, to make their idea of the common good concrete.
For the Foundation, betting on ideas and projects that maintain a lasting impact is still the only way to effectively invest in the future of the people and their ideas.
The foundation of the cooperation is its orientation to the common good, the principle that identifies and guides its work. While solidarity risks fuelling forms of dependence in
those who are helped, on the other hand, involvement and empowerment mobilise unexpected resources. Becoming active in one’s own redemption leads to becoming active,
Beyond the philanthropic donation, therefore, Fondazione Cattolica continues to invest in initiatives that yield results in the long term, following a perspective of social and economic
development that starts from the trust and enhancement of persons. While it intervenes, it encourages others to intervene. It becomes a sort of yeast activating the community.
Putting people in a position to do and to make, allowing everyone to walk on their own legs, are expressions that describe the philosophy that the Foundation seeks to spread, to generate something new from the meeting of experiences.
Those who wish to learn more about the activity of Fondazione Cattolica can find a detailed account of the inspiring principles, intervention methodologies and initiatives supported in 2020 in the Annual Mission Report.
In 2020, following the suspension of the payment of dividends ordered by the European Supervisory Bodies, Fondazione Cattolica did not receive the annual contribution from the Founder. However, activities continued by drawing on the reserves established in previous years through the sober management of costs and a careful evaluation of the proposed projects.
The Foundation was thus able to accept 150 requests for a total of € 2,121,250. More than 68% of the resources allocated were earmarked for solidarity. Half of the funds disbursed in this sector were dedicated to interventions related to the Covid-19 emergency
The projects supported by the Foundation in 2020 confirmed the choice, approved by the Board of Directors as early as 2011, to support activities and not structures, placing man at the centre and not the tool. The guidelines adopted have made it possible to optimise resources, giving priority to solutions with the greatest social impact.
This is reflected in the Foundation’s direct involvement in many of the initiatives deliberated, an objective achieved thanks to social enterprise interventions. With a total disbursement of € 932,500, these interventions represent the heart of the Foundation’s activity.
