The Municipality presented the results of the second edition of the Civic Crowdfunding promoted by the Department of Labor Policies, Productive Activities and Commerce of the Municipality of Milan, co-financed by the European Union and carried out in collaboration with Produzioni dal basso and Ginger crowdfunding.
The budget of the initiative speaks of 320,000 euros of funds raised thanks to 4 thousand donations from citizens who arrived in 70% of cases via mobile phones with an average donation of about 75 euros.
At the opening of the call for proposals relating to this initiative, 60 applications were received, of which only 19 were selected and then submitted to the Milanese for consideration with the related crowdfunding campaign. The goal was to be able to collect 40% of the resources necessary for the various projects and then access the remaining 60% with the non-repayable contribution of the Municipality.
“Civic Crowdfunding – he reiterated Cristina Tajani, Councilor for Labor, Productive Activities and Commerce Policies – confirms a valuable tool, not only for the possibility of gathering additional resources, but above all for involving citizens in redesigning spaces and services with the Administration so that they are increasingly in tune with the needs of the inhabitants of each single neighborhood “.
