Supporters and Partners
Fondazione Etica is reliant on its supporters; many people offer their assistance by donating their own money, but also by volunteering their skills and profession on a voluntary basis. No investor financially trumps any other as the foundation intends to preserve its financial and ideological autonomy. Private donations made to the foundation are always rather small in size. We would like to remind you of some of the foundation’s patrons who have supported us in their own ways. They were amongst some of the first to believe in our philosophy right from day one:
Marco Bassilichi, Giovanni Bazoli, Massimo Bettoni di Bettoni Costruzioni, Aldo Bonomi, Fondazione Cariplo, Maurizio Casasco, Fondazione Comunità, Antonio Fallico, Chiara Fantinelli, Elena Franceschetti, Piero Gandini di Flos, Fondazione Mps, Barbara Lazzari, Fernando Metelli, Franco Natalucci, Clara Stabiumi, Laura Veschetti, Matteo Zanetti.
The Fondazione Etica was accepted into the International network of foundations (European and other foundations) the EUROPEAN FOUNDATION CENTRE (EFC), with central offices in Brussels.
The foundation also partners with the European foundation, GROUP OF STATES AGAINST CORRUPTION (GRECO), which, in conjunction with the European Council, concerns itself with integrity, transparency and, above all, the fight against corruption. Our Observatory on Party Reforms aims to extend relations with Greek and Italian political parties, as well as with those in the other fifteen European democracies.
By working alongside GRECO, we have established contacts with the Italian Government’s Public Office regarding the same issues.
In regard to party regulation, we have forged a relationship with the PARTY LAW PORTAL which works out of the University of Leiden in the Netherlands.
The WORLD BANK GROUP considers corruption a major challenge to its twin goals of ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity for the poorest 40 percent of people in developing countries. In addition, reducing corruption is at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals and achieving the ambitious targets set for Financing for Development.
