Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires issues its first call for projects

July 2017

The new Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires endowment fund has issued its first call for projects. You have two months and 21 days to submit an application !

Set up in November 2016 by VINCI Construction, VINCI Energies and Eurovia with support from the Fondation VINCI pour la Cité, Chantiers et Territoires Solidaires supports public interest projects located in the vicinity of the Grand Paris projects on which VINCI Group companies are working. Chantiers et Territoires Solidaires focuses on two themes: access to employment and social ties. In addition to funding, Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires provides a donation in kind (equipment from VINCI worksites) and mentoring by Group employees who contribute time and skills.

The endowment fund reflects the VINCI Group's commitment to supporting local non-profit organisations. The programme is designed to demonstrate that worksites are places where people can come together and interact and that they have a positive social impact on the neighbourhoods in which they are located.

The first Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires call for projects focuses on employment. It will foster initiatives designed to create and maintain jobs, notably in the Val de Marne and Hauts de Seine departments. Location is an important selection criterion, as are the project's public interest status, social impact, neutrality and feasibility. Funding will be tailored to each project according to need. If your non-profit organisation meets the Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires criteria, feel free to list your funding needs in your application.
