Teaming is an initiative launched by Jil Van Eyle in 1998. Since then a multitude of individuals have contributed to a wide range of charitable causes, all by donating 1 euro a month each.
A handful of companies were the first to start Teaming. All of their employees who were inspired to do so contributed 1 euro a month to the charitable causes chosen by their companies. There are currently 1,000 companies from 40 different countries who are already Teaming. Together they raise 200,000 euros a month, which is sent to various charities. Spain is the country that has contributed most to Teaming, but the initiative also has a significant presence in Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Japan and the Netherlands.
In 2010 the idea arose to extend Teaming beyond just companies. Thus the initiative came about to create Teaming Online in order to reach out to anyone who would be interested in Teaming (groups of friends, families, soccer teams, NGOs, Foundations, etc.). Anyone who wants to can do Teaming!
For the moment Teaming Online is only available in Spain, but the goal is to develop the platform in other countries so that the amount of aid delivered will grow around the world. Accompanying us on this path are Grupo Intercom, everis and Banco Sabadell, the driving forces behind Teaming Online.
The Teaming Foundation has been founded to provide Teaming Online with a board of trustees and its objectives, etc. Teaming Online currently has ten staff members.
Teaming is possible thanks to the support of these companies...

The Teaming Foundation
How are the monthly contributions processed and how is Teaming Online financed?
Transparency is one of Teaming's fundamental principles. In this section we will give a brief and simple explanation of how the monthly contributions to Teaming Group members are handled and how Teaming Online is financed.
Processing of monthly contributions
All of the 1 euro contributions made by Teaming Group members are "stored" in a deposit account belonging to the Teaming Foundation. The money raised by each Group remains in that account until its respective Teaming Manager decides to release it to be donated to the charitable cause the Group is supporting.
We would like to point out one aspect in particular:
As you know, thanks to an agreement between Teaming Online and Banco Sabadell, each person's 1 euro per month contribution is sent intact to the charitable cause he or she has chosen; there are no fees. In exchange, the Teaming Foundation's deposit account is not paid any interest for "holding" the Teamers' money; the interest accrued on the Foundation's balance is instead used to fund the account's maintenance costs in order to keep the fees at 0.
Direct donations to the Teaming Foundation
There are individuals/companies who of their own accord have decided to make direct donations to the Teaming Foundation to help support its mission. This is the main source of the Teaming Foundation's financing.
