1) Objective

In line with the aspirations of its stakeholders and the company’s strategic direction, the Sofina Covid Solidarity Fund wishes to address the adverse consequences of the global Covid-19 pandemic on two key issues related to its focus sectors: specific challenges in healthcare systems and services and the digital gap in education.

1. Challenges to Healthcare Systems and Services

The challenges the pandemic poses to healthcare systems globally are manifold and difficult to overcome. Related issues range from shortages of medical equipment and limited capacities to restricted access to healthcare professionals during the confinement period, which significantly increases the health risk for wide parts of the global population. The Fund will sponsor initiatives focussing on health prevention and facilitating access to the first line of care. It will direct its efforts towards the regions severely impacted by the crisis, supporting large-scale projects addressing the problems of a large population.

2. The Digital Gap in Education

During the crisis, children across the globe are deprived of access to education. This worsens the inequalities in education outcomes for children from underprivileged backgrounds. In the current environment, digitisation is one of the solutions to bridge this educational gap. The Fund aims to help reducing this digital divide by supporting large-scale non-profit initiatives in the educational sector, targeting the needs of a large population.

2) Eligibility

All not-for-profit organizations setting up a project in Western Europe, India or Singapore and which fits with the key issues targeted by the Fund, may introduce an application.

3) Location

In terms of geographical scope, the contributions of the Fund will mostly be directed towards the regions in which Sofina is locally present and active, with an exclusive focus on Western-Europe, India and Singapore.

4) Budget

Selected projects will receive a minimum amount of €500,000.

5) Application

Initiatives or projects that could be supported by the Sofina Covid Solidarity Fund can be entered at any time within the limits of available funds. Candidates should complete the form “Request for Project” and send it to covidsolidarity@sofinagroup.com.
