"Shortly Fondazione Milan will be 15 years old, we are an active reality all over Italy, and we have also undertaken initiatives in different countries all over the world. We focus on children, on young people, we are present in many Italian cities, in difficult districts. The Report is absolutely positive, there is always so much to do, we hope to carry out initiatives young people’s world."
Fondazione Milan has been representing AC Milan's desire to work for the community, especially for new generations, for 14 years. The work focuses on the development of philanthropic initiatives that use sports as a tool to respond to the most urgent social needs.
In 2016/17 football season, Fondazione Milan confirmed the business model based on three guidelines - Sport for Change, Sport for All, Sport for Values and the program dedicated to Emergency situations.
Some innovations have also been introduced to further enhance the impact of each initiative.
Sport for Change has been enriched with new offices on the territory, managed directly by Human Resources of Fondazione Milan and the work dedicated to young people in conflict with the law has been deepened. As for Sport for All, new projects were tested to support disabled people to access sports practice, working in contexts different from those areas where people with difficulties are supported.
With Sport for All we also wanted to set up a pathway dedicated to the young players of AC Milan Youth Sector to create moments of mutual exchange with the protagonists of the projects of Fondazione Milan, a privileged opportunity to convey the values of diversity, the ability to adapt and listening to other people, the culture of inclusion.
Finally, Fondazione Milan set up a fund dedicated to fundraising for the people of central Italy affected by the earthquake on August 24, 2016.Fondazione Milan organized various fundraising activities, involving all the departments of the Club, the First Team Players and Milan Glorie.
