Fondazione Canali Onlus (FCO) was created from the desire of the Canali family to give life to a non-profit instrument of social utility that expresses and conveys the ethical values and human and social responsibilities that are important to the family and that lie at the foundation of the Group.
Established in July 2013 and legally recognized in November of the same year, FCO was structured in such a way that it could engage in the various solidarity initiatives in which the family and Group have long been actively involved in a continuous and more definitive manner.
The primary objective of Fondazione Canali Onlus is to promote and sustain projects and initiatives related to social assistance, healthcare, charity, education and professional training, also but not exclusively through contributions to specialized institutions that carry out such activities.
To date, the foundation has supported numerous projects of small, medium and large proportions both in Italy and abroad. The driving consideration is always the concreteness and immediacy of the intervention; ‘Make a difference and make it now’ is one of the guidelines of FCO, which believes firmly in the importance of providing concrete and immediate support in every initiative involving the foundation, no matter the scale.
The President of Fondazione Canali Onlus is Maria Grazia Canali, daughter of Eugenio Canali, Honorary Life President of the foundation.
