5x1000

Even a small action, a signature on paper, can help to change the wellbeing of the children we serve. 
If you pay taxes in Italy, then you can donate to Still I Rise your 5x1000 in your tax declaration and become the change with us. 
Donating your 5x1000 in your tax declaration to Still I Rise:

When filling out your tax declaration (730, CU or Modello Unico) find the section:

SCELTA PER LA DESTINAZIONE DEL CINQUE PER MILLE DELL’IRPEF

In the box “Sostegno delle organizzazioni non lucrative di utilità sociale, delle associazioni di promozione sociale…”, sign and write our Italian Vat Number 91015070633.

And you're done! 

If you normally don't fill out your tax declaration on your own, then just share our Italian Vat number with your accountant.

Do you want to support us even more? Talk about Still I Rise with your friends and family and let them know that they too can support our cause simply by signing a paper!

Every year our projects grow thanks to your support.

Corporate sponsors

We believe in a fair world and value corporate social responsibility. If you are the head of a company or you would like the company you work for to engage and support our mission on the ground, we invite you to view the following documents we have prepared.

Corporate sponsorship

We are very attentive to our expenses and we invite you to check our financial statements before you donate:

Financial Statement 2018 

We want to remind you that if you are a company based in Italy, donations to our organization are deductible from taxable income, according to Italian law.

There are two options:

  1. Subtraction from the taxable income of charitable donations of less than 30.000 euros or to an amount not greater than 2% of a company’s declared income. (art. 100, subparagraph 2, lett. h of D.P.R. n. 917/86).
  2. Deduction from net taxable income of donations, money or other, to an amount not greater than 10% of the total declared taxable income. (art. 83, subparagraph 2 of D.Lgs. n. 117/2017).

For every donation we receive, we will prepare a tax receipt in order to access either of these benefits.

If your company’s head office is located in the UK or in any country in which we work, contact us. You will be connected to our administrative office on the ground which will provide you with further information regarding tax deductible donations. Together we can make a difference in the lives of the children we serve. We ask you to contact us by email if you require further details.

Schools

It is in our nature to care about schooling and education, and we would like teachers and educators from all over the world to share with their students our movement of change.

We set up teaching units, projects and activities which can help teachers to tell their students about us and to work with them on the main objectives of our work: human rights and children rights, right to education, social justice, awareness on the hardships and poverty in the areas in which we work.

We can’t wait to expand and enrich our ideas with you. To start a project with Still I Rise in your school or education center, email us!

Books

Some stories really deserve to be told. We are proud and deeply dedicated to our mission, and this is the reason why we chose to document these stories in detail, taking all the space that only books can offer.

FAQ

Still I Rise is an international NGO founded in Summer 2018: its main goal is to provide education and protection for refugee children. Still I Rise is independent and free from any financial relationship with Governments, the European Union or the United Nations. Its name is inspired by the poem “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou, a hymn against prejudice, injustice and discrimination.

Still I RIse is composed of five operation teams. Check the “organization” page on our website to meet our team members!

You can find the answer on FAQ n. 1 “What is Still I Rise?”.

Still I Rise is entirely independent. We do not accept funds from the European Union, Governments or the United Nations.

At the moment Still I Rise is working in Greece in the Mazí Youth center and is starting the first international schools for refugee children in Turkey and Kenya.

The goal is to, after opening the schools in Turkey and Kenya, build similar schools in Mexico and Italy and therefore extend our ability to offer formal internationally-accredited schooling to refugee children, free of charge.
