Projects' Requirements

The Foundation’s Board of Trustees shall prioritise projects that meet the following criteria:
The overall “outstanding” features of the project shall be valued while taking account of the quality and experience of the team, economic and organizational feasibility and maturity.
Knowledge-based innovative projects (not only scientific) that lead to changes (not only technological) and generate value (not only economic).
Specific initiatives with concrete goals geared towards people with fewer resources, social problems and disabilities.
The projects and entities that manage them must be technically, environmentally and financially viable and sustainable in the long term, with the goal is to ensure a long-lasting social impact.
To channel the team’ spirit of solidarity and to encourage participation should be an intrinsic element of the project.
The cooperation with third parties should create value, and Altamar CAM values should be evident.
The non-profit entity should be certified by Fundación Lealtad or another respected independent body, or should have obtained or be actively working to obtain a quality certification.
Monitoring and assessment of each project’s progress based on pre-defined goals and performance indicators. Measuring social impact is essential for the project’s selection process, financing and reporting.

“AltamarCAM’s founding partners and managers are personally committed to ensuring that the profits made by the Company will have an impact on society beyond the creation of wealth and employment. We seek to make the Foundation’s mission a reality through effective, orderly and transparent management of its resources.”

Dr. Rolf Wickenkamp & Claudio Aguirre – Co-Chairmen of AltamarCAM
