Who can make a request to the Charity Fund and how to do it
The Charity Fund requires that the organization is legally constituted, equipped with a Deed of Constitution, Articles of Association and accounting procedures, and that it is registered at least in a public register. If the organization has no legal personality, as it is not registered in the register of legal persons, it must preferably be registered in a public register.
The reform of the Third Sector has provided for the establishment of a Single Register of the Third Sector (RUNTS). However, this registration is not mandatory. In order to register or migrate to the RUNTS, the ETS (third sector organizations) had to adapt their Statutes to the legislation in force. When requesting donations by the Charity Fund, proposers are invited to attach the original Deed of Constitution and the Statute in force at the time of the request.
In the event that an organization has changed its association form or was born from a partial transfer from another organization, the previous seniority is taken into consideration, i.e. the date of original incorporation of the transferring organization and its track record.
A public institution can request support only for specific initiatives of particular social, cultural or scientific importance, as highlighted in Art. 8 of the Regulations.
Completing the anti-corruption questionnaire is always mandatory. If it is not possible to trace the beneficial owner, the organization will be responsible for interfacing with its administrative offices to find the necessary information.
The organization can also enter into partnership agreements with public institutions.
In this case it is possible to attach the documents available at the date of submission of the request. During the preliminary investigation, the Fund will request any additional documents that may be necessary.
Requests relating to the Social Area (and Social Research) can be submitted throughout the year, keeping in mind that the available budget gradually erodes until it is exhausted.
The submission deadline of 05/31 is mandatory only for projects in the Medical Research Area. Interested organizations will have the entire day of 05/31 available to complete the submission of the project. Only complete projects submitted through the platform will be taken into consideration.
Links and images can only be inserted in the files that will be attached (abstract, budget or declarations and attachments section). It is not possible to insert any external references (links) or images within the narrative boxes.
For central donations only, the organization must use the budget model present on the platform. The use of the partnership agreement model, however, is not mandatory. This is a facsimile made available as a reference for those who have never drawn up this type of document.
The monitoring plan must be contextual to the implementation of the project. The evaluating institution must already be engaged in the planning phase and the final report must be delivered, like the project reporting, within 30 days of the end of the initiative, unless otherwise agreed with the Charity Fund.
In the request platform it will be necessary to select, in the "8) Information on the initiative" tab, the "Social (and Social Research)" General Area. Then, in the section “11) Contribution requested” indicate that the amount is more than €80,000. This will open the possibility to download the file containing the contacts.
Medical and social research area
For Medical Research projects and Social Research projects it is not mandatory to provide external monitoring.
Medical research area
The abstract in English must be inserted in the specific section on the application platform. This will only be available after selecting "Medical Research" in the "General Area" field. Applicants are invited to create a single file and then proceed with uploading it to the platform.
The budget in English must be inserted in the appropriate section "analytical budget of the costs of the initiative". Always remember to send the budget relating to the year of the request. The PDF version of the document must be signed by the legal representative. The spreadsheet version (e.g. Excel) is useful for the analysis.
The organization can proceed with the inclusion by sending an intermediate report, while the final report can be provided as soon as it is available.
