FAQ

Do I need to know which organisation I want to support when I submit an expression of interest?

Yes, you choose for yourself which organisation you want to support. If you do not know which organisation, you can always check with a colleague if they have any suggestions. You can also form a group and do it together.

How much do I have to get involved?

How much you have to get involved is up to yourself, the organisation and your manager. There is no requirement that you have to be there x number of hours, rather you can figure out what works best for you. The project runs for 6-12 months so you can self-allocate your time duringthis period. During the course of the project, we want you to document when you are there and what our contribution has helped with.

What kind of organisation can I seek support for?

The VINCI Foundation only donates money to charity so the organisation or company you choose to support must meet that requirement.

Do I have to be an employee of VINCI?

Yes, you must be employed by a Nordic company belonging to the VINCI Group.

How much money can I apply for?

You can apply for anything between SEK 0-100,000.

Am I committing to something if I submit an expression of interest?

No, if you submit an expression of interest, we will contact you to find out more. If it is the case that it is no longer relevant, you can of course withdraw your expression of interest.

Can I get involved during working hours?

Whether or not you can get involved during working hours, is up to your immediate manager to decide.

Do I have to get involved through an organisation?

Yes. We can only support charitable organisations or businesses. We cannot support a particular person and a project that you would like to start.
