Membership fees and private individual donations will be tax deductible if the declaration is approved by the government
Aportem-Puerto Solidario Valencia, of which Boluda Corporación Marítima is a founding member, has approved a “public interest” declaration to present to the government. If accepted, the main advantage this recognition will confer is significant fiscal benefits regarding membership fees and donations made to Aportem.
The agreement was adopted at the board meeting held at the Port Authority of Valencia on 13 May, and the approval is to be endorsed by the General Assembly.
Cemesa was also accepted as a new member during the meeting.
The Board meeting was attended by Aportem Action Committee, who gave the two work teams a full briefing on the scope of activities on which Aportem is focused.
The meeting agenda included analysis of actions carried out and review of future initiatives to be undertaken. Preparations for this year’s back-to-school support campaign were initiated. The work meeting’s action points were to obtain a list from schools and Aportem’s collaborating entities of their most urgent needs, to allocate funds towards the most important ones. As per every year the goal is to have the collaboration ready for the beginning of the next school year.
The meetings also informed about the two successful ophthalmological campaigns carried out by Aportem in conjunction with Visió Sense Fronteres and Fundació Baleària, as well as a current initiative to collect children’s books for participating schools in the Maritime District.
Sponsored by the Port Authority and the Valenciaport Foundation, Aportem-Puerto Solidario Valencia already has 26 partners, including associations, institutions, companies and individuals. Among other achievements Aportem supports nursery and school age education, providing snacks, breakfasts and school and sports equipment to a number of schools around the port of Valencia.
