Italian term or phrase: xx% a fondo perduto

English translation:non-refundable loan
Explanation:
"fondo perduto" has any number of meanings and it may have positive or negative connotations.

Eurodic talks of "non-repayable" funds, sunk capital, non-refundable grants, partnership grants, investment grants:
For instance it quotes
"investment grants consist of unrequited transfers by general government or by the rest of the world,for the purpose of financing,in whole or in part,specific items of gross fixed capital formation by other institutional units"

What Francesco and TafTrad offer are two possibilities.

I suggest you stick to something generic such as "non-refundable loan"

as an unredeemable contribution


Explanation:
dice il Sansoni grande

manca la parola CONTRIBUTO o meglio il FONDO é da intendere come CONTRIBUTO: contribution, aid, allowance

soprattutto AID

Se non é così ha ragione d'Alessandro
to forgive a debt = condonare un debito
(più che un condono è un regalo)
