Every year, the Allocation Committee selects projects submitted directly by the Cités des métiers or in answer to a call for thematic projects.
Each project has to be supported by at least, two (2) Cités des métiers, including a Cité des métiers already opened to the public.
To be eligible the project has then to meet, as much as possible, five main criteria presented as below :
Each project is evaluated before, during and after its implementation. The methodology proposed is based on a qualitative and quantitative approach.
A collaborative learning tool which directly or indirectly involve all stakeholders concerned: Cités des métiers, partners, beneficiaries, donors,
A process to determine progress, effectiveness for beneficiaries and territorial impact of each project,
A means of reporting to donors the added value of their contribution to the activities supported by the endowment fund,
A necessary step before a spin off of the project on other territories.
The fund team will involve different expertises via the Association Française des Fundraisers (AFF), the Centre Français des fondations et fonds de dotation (CFF) and business donors in France and abroad.
