Roma Cares was founded in 2014 with the aim of promoting education and positive values through sports. The foundation is a public charity tied to AS Roma’s wider context of respect and corporate social responsibility.
The foundation will carry out its institutional activity through projects and campaigns that principally aim at supporting and developing the growth of children and youth in disadvantaged situations.
For this purpose, the foundation will be involved in planning, implementing and organizing free sports initiatives for disadvantaged children, guaranteeing their right to sports and making it accessible to the needy, and recognizing its primary and irreplaceable educational, social and protective function.
In every case, the foundation’s activities will be aimed at benefitting those with physical, psychological, economic, social or family disadvantages.
The foundation aims to address these social categories and regulate its activities through AS Roma’s fundamental principles: responsibility towards the local community, dedication to projects capable of guaranteeing a lasting legacy, focuse on youth, respect for the community’s identity and the ancient tradition that makes Rome a capital naturally predisposed to integration and enrichment based on cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity.
