Fondazione CRT: For 30 years a driving force in the development and growth of the territory

15 Giugno 2022

Fondazione CRT is a private non-profit organisation founded in 1991. For 30 years it has been one of the “drivers” of the development and growth of Piedmont and the Aosta Valley in three macro-areas: Art and Culture, Research and Education, Welfare and Territory. It intervenes with its own projects and resources for the enhancement of artistic heritage and cultural activities, the promotion of scientific research and training of young people, support for innovation and social entrepreneurship, assistance to people in difficulty, environmental protection, the civil protection system and first response systems.

In over a quarter of a century of activity, Fondazione CRT has distributed resources amounting to 2 billion euros and has enabled more than 40,000 interventions to be carried out for the territory. In addition to financial support, there is also non-financial support, project support, the provision of internal expertise and experience and the sharing of networks.

Fondazione CRT is active in the main international philanthropy networks, such as the Philanthropy Europe Association – Philea, and collaborates with organizations such as the United Nations, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and the European Cultural Foundation. Fondazione CRT has also redeveloped the OGR-Officine Grandi Riparazioni in Turin, with 100 million euros, reconverting the former train repair shops into experimental centre for contemporary culture, art, research and business acceleration.
