Teaming Foundation

Teaming Foundation was founded with the main objective of creating, maintaining, developing and promoting the Teaming platform to support social causes. The website was launched in January 2012. The platform is an online tool to raise funds to help social causes through micro-donations of 1€ per month, totally free of commissions. From 2016 onwards, we have also organized the Teaming Awards, which aim to reward marketing campaigns of solidarity and the effort made by the Teaming Managers on the platform.

During all this time, we have not stopped learning, reflecting and growing. It is very important for us to keep on improving Teaming to make it more and more helpful.

How is Teaming Foundation funded?

Teaming is completely free. We don’t get any profit from the money raised through the platform, all the funds raised are destined to the social causes. And Teaming is funded by the donations from the companies of companies of our Board, the sponsors of "Here We are Teaming" and because of our own Teaming Group. And because of this Teaming Group, our dream of being self-sufficient will be possible.

Furthermore, we have an ethical commitment in the management of resources: low cost of the organisation and an austere expenditure policy.
