Governance

HOW WE PURSUE OUR GOALS

We have a system of governance that allows us to work in a consistent and transparent manner.

We operate thanks to the funds we receive from Amplifon and other donors to carry out or support initiatives of social, cultural and educational value, in partnership with institutions, public administrations, public and private entities.

We design and implement projects in line with our strategy and promote fund-raising to strengthen the Foundation's action.
