Since it was established in 1991, Fondazione Cariplo has supported more than 30,000 initiatives with donations totalling 2.8 billion euros. In addition to the traditional sectors it supports (environment, arts and culture, scientific research and social and human services) , four new programs were introduced.

The foundation recently announced that in 2016 it will provide a total of 152 million for grants. The main policy areas remain the same but in addition the foundation has introduced four new ‘inter-sectoral’ programmes: social peripheries, (De)centering, social innovation and Jobfactory, a project based in Milan and which it is estimated will create 10,000 jobs in three years.
