Non-profit organisations founded by the Bank


The bank has always given great importance to the social, cultural and civil development of the communities in which it operates.

We have always aimed to be a role model in the tertiary sector and provide support for people in need. As such, we have set up a number of non-profit organisations designed to pursue social objectives using methods other than just funding.



Enti Non Profit costituiti da Intesa Sanpaolo
PAN - Infant Services Consortium

Pan – Infant Services is a non-profit consortium launched in 2004 by Intesa Sanpaolo and some of the largest social enterprise networks in Italy: CGM Cooperative, Con-Opera National Consortium.

The aim is to support tertiary sector organisations to develop educational services of elevated quality in line with European PAN standards.

PAN Consortium social cooperatives and enterprises manage Intesa Sanpaolo company nurseries and those that have been opened in various Italian paediatric centres as part of the Educational Programme for Long-Stay Child Patients.


VOBIS Association

The VOBIS Association (Banking Volunteers for Social Initiatives) aims to promote financial inclusion among families in need and tertiary sector organisations, supporting their development and growth plans so they can come through their difficult situations and enjoy better access to credit.

It involves micro-credit and micro-finance programmes put together with the support of our associates, plus former banking workers who volunteer the skills and experience accrued during their professional activity to help those in need.


Fits! Foundation

The Foundation for the innovation of the Third Sector - FITS! has been set up by Intesa Sanpaolo in 2011 with the aim of creating social value, supporting the Third Sector and the whole community.


  •          addresses new social needs;
  •          develops flexible service models to respond to rapidly evolving social requirements;
  •          replicates best practices in local areas, increasing efficiency and creating economies of scale;
  •          raises awareness among new social investors in the public and private sectors.


SPIN Consortium

This non-profit consortium was set up by Intesa Sanpaolo in 2010 with the leading sport groups bodies to support the development of quality sports projects, raise awareness of these and facilitating their access to credit.

Associations affiliated with participating sports groups can access SPIN, as can participating organisations and local bodies who want to organise a project and gauge its suitability based on market demand and technical and economic sustainability criteria.

SPIN assesses and approves the redevelopment of existing facilities, the construction of new facilities and the creation of new service offerings.


Lombarda Antiusura Onlus Foundation

The Lombardy Anti-Loansharking Foundation (FLA) was set up in 1997 in accordance with Law 108/96 on loansharking by the Cassa di Risparmio delle Provincie Lombarde, which later became a part of Intesa Sanpaolo.

The aim of the foundation is to help people who - for a variety of legal reasons - find themselves in situations of financial difficulty or are at risk of falling into the trap of loansharking.

The foundation acts as grantor to deserving private citizens and SME whose economic and financial situation means that they are unable to access credit under ordinary criteria.
