Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo
Since 1563, we have been working out of Turin for the common good, with a focus on people.
Our experience has taught us that the well-being of individuals is closely linked to that of their community. This is why, for us, the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations are a valuable opportunity to contribute to the future of humankind at all levels: we have taken on this challenge and reorganised ourselves accordingly.
We have three main Goals: Culture, People and Planet, which can be achieved through fourteen Missions.
We are committed to preserving and expanding our endowment in order to make contributions and develop projects working alongside institutions and in collaboration with our auxiliary bodies. This is our commitment, for the common good and for everyone’s future.
A philanthropic, grant making institution, supporting non profit organizations and local institutions and communities in implementing projects with a social purpose in the following sectors: Arts and Culture, Welfare and Wellbeing, Scientific Research and Environment.
Dating back to 1823, managing the assets gathered over 180 years by its predecessor, Cassa di Risparmio delle Provincie Lombarde (the Savings Bank of the Lombardy Provinces), to carry on its long-standing philanthropic tradition, Fondazione Cariplo aims at operating on the basis of the principle of subsidiarity, anticipating needs and fulfilling its special mission of being a resource that helps social and civil organizations better serve their community.
