For some years now the Mondiali have been at risk of closure due to lack of both public and private funding.
Every year the whole organization of the Mondiali led by Uisp makes efforts to continue this event that we all care so much about. It does this by trying to keep the spirit of the Anti-racism World Cup alive; a sporting and cultural event free for all.
We do not want to close them and that’s why we ask you to contribute. In the theme of crowd funding if everyone pitches in, we will reach the important figures that will allow us to survive.
We opened an account with Banca Prossima dedicated to the Mondiali:
Swift Code: BCITITMX
payable to UISP Mondiali
Reason: Donation Mondiali 2013
As the Anti-Racism World Cup:
we want to continue running the event without sign up fees,
we want to continue to provide basic services (camping) for free,
we want to continue to maintain our status as an ECOFESTA,
we want to continue to provide free admission to concerts …
All this comes with a huge cost: renting the facilities, seting up the sports fields, the arena concerts, renting baths and showers, preparing all the restaurants and bars, giving simple travel reimbursements and meals to the volunteers who work for 3 weeks completely free, and paying the musicians (the most of which is only to reimbursement their costs).
Maintaining our ECOFESTA status is the primary cost: the environmentally sustainable materials are expensive, the provision of seperated waste bins for recycling, and providing free water for all.
This year the situation has certainly worsened due to the economic crisis in Italy (and Europe) and even more so due the political crisis and institutional vacuum that this nation is facing. This has to scarce public funding as well as a reduced number of associations and private sponsors.
The Mondiali are at risk of dying.
If we do not achieve a balanced budget this year, itwill mean that the next year we will be forced to cancel the event, because Uisp will no longer be able to cover the yearly deficit.
Send us a check payable to: Mondiali 2013, with your name and email address so we can send a thank you email and a certificate of donation.
The survival of the World also depends on you!
