How does CORRENTI work?

We raise funds through various initiatives: events, crowd-funding, tax returns, collaborations with local enterprises;

Before giving any grants, we ensure that the beneficiary organisation is reliable, trustworthy and well known to our members. We maintain close contact with them, to build up a relationship build on reciprocal trust;

We ensure full reporting of our costs, with documentation (photos / videos) and a breakdown of costs. We share this and our full accounts publically, to ensure full transparency.

We work with local enterprises, who support us through donations and partnerships for special projects:
