Alla luce della Legge di Stabilità, che prevede per il 2015 un forte incremento della tassazione sulle Fondazioni di origine bancaria, esprimiamo il totale disappunto per una scelta che rischierebbe di penalizzare ulteriormente soggetti che nel corso degli anni hanno sostenuto l'attività sportiva e sociale su tutto il territorio lombardo, come la Fondazione Cariplo.

La FICTS (Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs), Federazione Internazionale riconosciuta dal CIO – Comitato Internazionale Olimpico, denuncia una simile e insostenibile situazione che interromperebbe quella proficua azione di filantropia che ha caratterizzato la Fondazione Cariplo in questi ultimi 20 anni sul territorio milanese e lombardo ed invita ad aderire alla campagna #MENOTASSEPIUEROGAZIONI, in grande crescita sui social network (come testimoniato dalla pagina facebook: https://www.facebook.com/menotassepiuerogazioni).

La FICTS si schiera al fianco di Fondazione Cariplo appoggiando iniziative di soggetti che svolgono attività sportiva per i giovani, per il welfare di comunità e per il benessere. A nome della Federazione che presiedo invito tutti gli operatori del settore dello sport e della cultura che rappresento  ad aderire via twitter alla campagna (https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=menotassepiuerogazioni&src=typd) in sostegno delle Fondazioni.
