The Teaming Foundation was founded at the end of 2011 with a mission: fostering solidarity through technology. In keeping with this aim, teaming.net was launched in January 2012. The platform allows anybody to support social causes through micro-donations of 1€ per month. We want solidarity to be accessible to all and to be completely disintermediated, as every euro donated goes to the social cause. From 2016 onwards, we have also organized the Teaming Awards, which aim to reward marketing campaigns of solidarity and the effort made by social entities to raise awareness and empathy.
The Board of Trustees of the Teaming Foundation
The Teaming Foundation is chaired by Eugenio Galdón Brugarolas. The company NTT DATA, represented by the CEO Fritz Hoderlein, and Pedro Nueno Iniesta hold the vice-presidencies. Rocío Martínez-Sampere, Manuel Campo Vidal, Ignasi Fainé, Joaquín Coronado, Itiziar de Francisco, Xavier Oliver Conti and the NTT DATA Foundation complete the board of trustees. The non-trustee secretary of the Teaming Foundation is Albert Trias de Bes. Patricia Sánchez Delicado is the director.
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.
Private donations by the companies in the Board. Teaming counts with the support of NTT DATA and other private donors, that fund the costs for developing and maintaining the website and the team that manages it.
Private donations of 1.000€/year to help with the development and management of the website too.
Banco Sabadell is the entity that makes it possible for the website to be free of commissions. Each euro donated through Teaming is a euro to help the social cause.
We have taken on the commitment to maintain the costs of the organisation lower than 10% of the money raised for the social causes in the website.
We have a professional team that takes care of the quality and provides solid base for Teaming. Moreover, we have optimized our resources and tried to complement the team with volunteers and contributors.
We have volunteers that gives their time and know-how to help with the management and growth of Teaming.Would you like to become a volunteer?
