The City of Turin has launched the second edition of the call that aims to encourage the generation, development, testing and implementation of innovative projects with a social impact by offering third sector actors support in building crowdfunding campaigns based on online collection of micro -Donations.

The Call is divided into two phases: during the first phase (application deadline: 1 August 2019) it will be possible to apply to the Social Crowdfunding Academy, a training course aimed at acquiring all the necessary skills on the subject. Among the participants, 6 projects will be selected for the second phase: those projects will be accompanied and supported for the implementation of their crowdfunding campaign.

The call and the application form are available here.

During the first edition of the call, 48 teams had been selected and admitted to the Social Crowdfunding Academy in June and July 2018. The project “Colori Vivi” by the non-profit organization Article 10 has launched its first crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter on 28 June 2019. The remaining 5 projects will launch their campaigns at the end of September 2019.

The service is implemented as part of PON METRO – measure 3.3.1.b and implemented by the European Crowdfunding Center based in Incet, Turin.
