  • The call for these grants is open between this Friday and April 15 and offers NGOs in the province the possibility of doing charitable activities in the Ávila Foundation's spaces.
  • The auditorium of the Foundation, Los Serrano Palace and the Theatre are the available spaces.
  • This Friday is also the start of the 'Call for Social Action 2019', 80,000 euros aimed at non-profit organizations that develop social projects aimed at promoting employment and improving the quality of life of the people of Ávila.

Bankia and the Ávila Foundation open the application period for the grants, 15,000 euros, so non-profit entities and associations in the province devoted to welfare or culture, can arrange cultural and/or artistic activities during 2019.

The grants are offered so that these entities can carry out activities in any of the following areas of the Ávila Foundation: Theatre, Ávila Fundation Auditorium (C/ Pedro Lagasca) and Los Serrano Palace (classrooms or auditorium), always for non-profit purposes.

The characteristics of the spaces, including their capacity, can be seen on www.fundacionavila.es, which includes a virtual tour to know each of them in depth.

In order to qualify for the grants, the applicant must be a legal entity operating in Ávila (capital or province) and the purpose of the proposed activity must be charity. The association will also guarantee a minimum assistance of half of the room requested.

Applicants must submit a dossier describing the entity/association submitting the proposal, the individual responsible for the activity and their contact information, date on which the space is requested -along with alternative dates- and the name and description of the activity.

The project dossier, along with a cover letter that includes a reference to the call, must be sent by post or delivered in person at the Los Serrano Palace, headquarters of the Ávila Foundation. Requests sent by email will not be accepted.

The governing bodies of the Ávila Foundation and Bankia executives will determine, based on pre-established criteria, which proposals of the presented in time and that meet the indicated requirements will receive the aid.
