The project carried out by the finance team consisted of fundraising for the Amis entity. Amis Inserción Social is a non-profit organisation created with the aim of offering alternatives and opportunities to people and groups of people at risk of social exclusion, taking into account the special vulnerability of adolescents and young people, women and immigrants.
First of all, our team had an approach with the entity where we visited their work place and the people in charge of the organization. This first contact helped us to get a real idea of the work of the organization and the needs they had.
From the finance team we had an objective, to obtain financing for the entity so that they could face their expenses and their day by day. My team and I came up with different ideas that consisted of the following: creation of a service company, in which we could offer the work of the boys of the entity so that they could join the working world, organization of sports or musical events with the collection of funds through the price of the tickets and also to start giving visibility to the organization itself so that it would be known in the long term.
Taking into account the circumstances of the Covid-19, we were forced to react. Although this situation meant that our ideas could not be carried out, we did not give up and quickly thought of other solutions. My team and I had the idea of creating a crowfunding to raise funds for the entity. A goal was set for the fundraising along with a detailed description of the organization so that the people who were going to collaborate knew what AMIS really does. In this way we believed that, given the circumstances, it was the most convenient and fastest way to raise funds for the organization.
