1st July 2020 - As every year since 2009, DELSOL Avocats launches a call for projects to select the winners of its endowment fund competition. In 2020 the prizes will amount to a total of 35 000€
Created in February 2009, the DELSOL Avocats endowment fund is one of the first created in France. Its purpose is to support the firm’s corporate philanthropy actions, driven by the desire of its partners and associates to commit themselves to projects that promote strong human values.
The national competition organized in partnership with the National Forum of Associations and Foundations aims at rewarding pubic-interest organizations :
A pre-jury, consisting of DELSOL Avocats endowment fund’s board of directors, will pre-select 3 files.
The 3 shortlisted candidates will be invited to come and present their structure and project in a 10-minute video during the National Forum of Associations and Foundations to take place in Paris on 15 October 2020.
The jury will then designate three winners who will be awarded the following prizes :
During the deliberations, an expert of fundraising will analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates and present fundraising best practices.
The team "Non-profit organisations – Social and solidarity-based economy", which is at the origin of the endowment fund, is invested in its daily management and in the follow-up of the candidates.
With some twenty lawyers specifically dedicated to this project, including four partners, Alexis BECQUART, Laurent BUTSTRAËN, Xavier DELSOL, Lionel DEVIC, it is the largest and most structured team on the French market.
