Increasing social opportunities

The Foundation for Innovation in the Third Sector - FITS! - is an enterprise venture established by Banca Prossima, now incorporated into Intesa Sanpaolo in the Impact Department, in 2011 with the aim of creating social value, starting with the voluntary sector and with our sights set on the entire community.

We do not offer subsidies; what we do is monitor new social needs, develop flexible service models to meet rapidly evolving social demand, disseminate best practice across the territory to generate efficiency and economies of scale, and attract interest from new social investors for public and private entities.

Construction of "ecosystems" as a modus operandi

The social system requires new models capable of reinforcing the sustainability of organisations by restoring efficiency and using financial tools to facilitate and strengthen links with private, public and social enterprise backers.

Those who have the resources do not always identify the most pressing social problems and the most effective ways of tackling them. This discrepancy results in wasted energy and a lot of missed opportunities.
Research and its accompanying social planning, promotion and development of "network systems" among third-sector players, synergy with commercial entities and government agencies, and innovative welfare models are the modus operandi for FITS!

The Foundation plays an "aggregator" role in terms of experience, and is a "catalyst" for skills.
