OSF “Prendiamoci cura oltre il Covid-19” Fund

In 2020 the Opera San Francesco Foundation set up the “Prendiamoci cura oltre il Covid-19” fund whose goal is to help guests of OSF to live, not just to survive.

More specifically, with this instrument OSF:

  • provides solutions for new beneficiaries and new specific and significant needs
  • provides a buffer for those who had managed to get by until today, preventing them from slipping into survival mode
  • is able to offer suitable services for responding to the existential and economic uncertainty that already existed prior to Covid-19. The fund is designed to provide additional and temporary income support.

This can take the form of

  • short-term support (up to 6 months) in response to specific and precise economic emergencies: the Fund dispenses direct non-repayable loans or provides goods and services (purchasing them or receiving them in the form of donations) for a total of € 6,000.
  • long-term support (from 6 months to max. 3 years) to support the development of new projects tailored to the specific needs of beneficiaries (old and new), combining non-repayable financial loans with projects developed with the other Opera services to guarantee access to education and training courses, business support, support in seeking employment and housing, etc.

The Fund consists of 4 bodies which work to identify and then monitor and follow the beneficiaries of the Fund.

  1. Management Committee
  2. Assessment Committee
  3. Assessment Couples
  4. Care Team

In 2020 the Foundation allocated €1,031,000 to the “Prendiamo cura oltre il Covid-19” Fund and at 31/12/20 had disbursed a total of € 19,530
