Our road toward “social proactiveness” started in 2005 when Cogetech decided to support an initial Telethon research project. Since then, our corporate social responsibility mission has become an increasingly important goal for us and has strengthened over time. Alongside the long journey in support of Telethon research, we have also undertaken a project with the Care & Share Foundation to help support needy Indian children. In 2010, through the Francesca Rava Foundation, the company’s commitment and goals have developed in the direction of contributing toward the wellness of the most disadvantaged members of society and improving their quality of life and social cohesion. In addition to these projects, others have been undertaken as well such as, for example, the charity initiatives in favor of the association Caritas e di Opera di San Francesco per i Poveri (Charity and Works of San Francis for the Poor). In 2013, we felt the need to unite all of these good causes under one umbrella in the form of a foundation. This is the story of our establishment of the iZilove Foundation which currently represents Snaitech’s concrete commitment toward sustainability. The foundation is an autonomous non-profit entity which pursues solely the goal of social solidarity in the areas of social assistance and charity, education and training, the promotion of culture and art and scientific research.
Snaitech’s commitment, through its own foundation, is to develop charitable and solidarity-driven initiatives pertaining to the activities already undertaken in the past and, therefore, with a view to sustaining a long-term CSR project, Snaitech intends to continue to sustain its previous initiatives. These are activities aimed at establishing partnerships with Onlus organizations committed to helping disadvantaged children in Italy and in the world through long-distance adoptions, projects, awareness-raising activities on children’s rights and volunteer initiatives. In addition, it will seek to establish new collaborations in order to disseminate the value of sports as an instrument for aggregation, social recognition and growth, in addition to being an instrument for pure fun and entertainment.
