Gift Matching Program
The “Gift Matching Program” (GMP) is the philanthropic initiative launched by UniCredit Foundation in 2003 to support colleagues in their commitment to non-profit organisations.
In line with the commitment that UniCredit has taken on social issues, the 2018 Gift Matching Program, , has seen a broad renewal aimed at strengthening the effectiveness of the Foundation’s intervention and promoting the impact on the selected projects.
The admission criteria for the 2018 Gift Matching Program was updated, to reinforce the effectiveness of the supported projects, in line with the commitment that UniCredit has undertaken in the social space.
The beneficiary organisations were selected by each country, through an employee voting mechanism and in relation to a specific Project, operating in one of the following three sectors: childhood support, disability support, environmental protection.
The most voted projects were included in a final list (Positive List), made up of 67 organisations: from this list, employees were able to choose the initiative or initiatives to be supported through one or more donations
UniCredit Foundation doubles the donations made by employees in a given year and complements the collected sums, to a maximum amount of € 500 for individual donations and € 15,000 for each beneficiary organisation.
More than € 200,000 was donated, which will be doubled by the Foundation.
