A new Third sector actor working in favour of the territory and the Valsesian population to promote the Culture of Donation.
The press conference for the presentation of the Valsesia Foundation was held on May 29th. It is a new subject of the Third sector that works in favour of the territory and the Valsesian population to promote the Culture of Donation.
The Foundation was created thanks to the support of Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Vercelli. It brings together the main representatives of the local community (private individuals, institutions, public and non-profit bodies, parishes)to improve the quality of life of the community itself, activating energies and resources and promoting the culture of solidarity, donation and social responsibility. Territorially, the Valsesia Foundation covers all 38 Municipalities of Valsesia, which include about 60,000 inhabitants. This type of foundation offers the community a real possibility to invest in its own development and qualities, activating resources "from the ground up" to carry out projects and social interventions.
On June 3rd at 4 pm, the foundation will be officially presented to the national and local, civil and religious authorities. The event will be attended by Francesco Profumo (Chair of Compagnia di San Paolo), Fernando Lombardi (Chair of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Vercelli), Cesare Ponti (Chair of the Foundation of Novarese Community Onlus), Maurizio De Paoli (Chair of the VCO Community Foundation - Verbano-Cusio-Ossola) as well as representatives of the foundation’s board of directors.
A round table will be held during the day with experts to talk about the social needs of the territory, which the Valsesia Foundation intends to meet by financing projects of social utility together with the local population,.
Marco Demarie will be present on behalf of Compagnia.
