Banca Etica Will Co-Fund Crowdfunding Campaigns to Support Arts and Culture Projects

Banca Etica launched a Call for projects, with the aim of co-funding crowdfunding campaigns in the arts sectors. On the one hand, Impact+ 2022 proposes concrete action to foster economic recovery and employment recovery through projects, events, art, and cultural creations, targeting a sector plagued like few others by the Covid19 pandemic.



The Banca Etica Group has launched the Impatto+ 2022 Call for Projects aimed at supporting and creating and disseminating artistic-cultural products and services capable of promoting the human, social and civil rights of all people.

Initiatives selected to obtain funding made available by the call will be able to conduct fundraising through crowdfunding on the Produzioni dal Basso platform, hosted exclusively in the Banca Etica Network. Campaigns that have reached at least 75 percent of the set fundraising target within the stipulated period will enjoy Etica Sgr’s grant for the remaining 25 percent through the Crowdfunding Fund.

In addition to this, the call contemplates an extraordinary premium of 5 percent calculated on the initially planned budget for projects that will have already fully covered their budget without the need for contributions.

Alongside culture wounded in pandemic and for forgotten rights

The occasion is therefore relevant for several reasons. On the one hand, Impact+ 2022 proposes concrete action to foster economic recovery and employment recovery through projects, events, art, and cultural creations, targeting a sector plagued like few others by the Covid19 pandemic. On the other hand, as a purpose and direct consequence of the guaranteed financial collection for so many realities operating in an averagely under-privatized sphere, the call becomes a concrete tool for the expansion of civil and social rights and their respect.
