Fondazione Marcegaglia Onlus is the participation foundation, established in 2010 by the Marcegaglia family of entrepreneurs: Steno Marcegaglia, his wife Mira, their sons Emma and Antonio with Carolina Toso Marcegaglia, who has been entrusted with the presidency.
The Foundation reflects the spirit that animated the steel processing company founded in Gazoldo degli Ippoliti over 50 years ago and become a Group with 50 plants worldwide: entrepreneurial excellence has always been accompanied, with discretion, by sensitivity to numerous social issues.
Marcegaglia Foundation supports solidarity projects through funding to organizations rooted in the area or directly through operational partners.
Abroad, the Foundation supports development projects focusing on female entrepreneurship through the start-up of work and the creation of micro-enterprises and the development of local health systems.
In Italy, it supports interventions aimed at combating social exclusion, domestic violence and new forms of poverty, particularly in the areas where the company is present with its factories.
Marcegaglia Foundation is a member of Assifero, the national association of Italian foundations and philanthropic bodies.
