The Fondazione TIM (TIM Foundation), set up in 2008 as the fruit of the Telecom Italia Group's Corporate Social Responsibility strategy (now Corporate Shared Value), is a corporate foundation dedicated primarily to disbursing funds, which operates in Italy and in countries where the Group has an institutional presence.

The Foundation enables the Group to concentrate and strengthen its commitment to the community, with the main aim of improving people's quality of life, pursuing its objectives through the allocation of contributions to initiatives proposed by non-profit organizations and associations.

It operates in the social field, with educational and support initiatives dedicated to the vulnerable and in any case disadvantaged categories and bands of the population; in the development of planning applied to education, training and scientific research; in the protection of the Italian historical and artistic and environmental heritage, developing innovative ways and means of enjoying and disseminating knowledge.

Listening and intercepting the needs of the community, anticipating solutions; stimulating ideas and projects within the company; supporting innovation and defining new training processes through the use of a "sustainable" technology model, are some of the main inspirations for the TIM Foundation.
