Our Pledge

Last year, in the midst of multiple global crises, we made a commitment to raise funds for a range of charities and social enterprises supporting causes that resonated particularly closely with us. Over the course of 2020 we fundraised €20,000 for various organisations including UNICEF Italia, Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres in the UK, a number of Italian hospitals during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, Cooperativa Alice and Meditarranea Rescue

In 2021, we pledge to continue this commitment and we have decided to direct our charitable support in two key directions. 

Fundraising Events

Over the course of 2021 we will host a number of special events at Villa Lena, with 10% of proceeds to be split between two organisations to support their important work effecting positive change around the world for disadvantaged women. We want to use our resources, our voice and our community, to effect positive change in the world and particularly in the lives of vulnerable women. 

Women for Women International helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives and creates a chain of inspiration for these at risk women. Telefonorosa is an Italian service site created to help vulnerable women and work towards the prevention of violence alongside the promotion of culture, understanding, tolerance and respect. 

ARTS ACCESSIBILITY

We are also committed to creating more accessibility and enabling more support for artists from a diverse range of backgrounds on the Villa Lena Foundation’s residency programme. Through an exciting new partnership with MQBMBQ we have facilitated 3 fully funded residency spots, supported by luxury Italian brand Bulgari, for artists from around the world. This is only the start of what we hope to achieve in terms of opening up the prestigious Villa Lena Foundation Residency programme to a new range of artists and collaborators.
