Fondation Groupe Primonial
In June 2O2O, the Financière de l'Echiquier Foundation became the Primonial Group Foundation. Still sheltered by the Fondation de France, it will continue the actions deployed for 15 years. In addition to the historic fields of action of education and integration, health has been added to the Primonial Group's commitment.
Purpose of the Foundation
Unite the company’s employees around an ideal of solidarity and give people in vulnerable situations a chance to get their lives back on track: the main purpose of the Foundation, under the aegis of the Fondation de France, expresses our desire to share.
Since 2010, donations have been accompanied by an equal opportunities programme, Les Maisons des Jeunes Talents. It helps scholarship students gain access to the most prestigious higher education institutions: what could be more exciting than helping talented and deserving young people realise the dream of attending one of these schools?
Areas of action
Educational projects are foremost among the Foundation’s priorities because they are an essential means of empowering everyone to choose and build their future.
The Foundation focuses on persons experiencing extreme exclusion. It supports projects that use economic tools to help them return to work, which means financial autonomy and dignity.
The Foundation has decided to invest in the field of health and will soon define the type of projects to be financed.
Maisons des Jeunes Talents
This equal opportunities programme, designed and implemented by the Foundation to facilitate access to the most prestigious higher education institutions for students from modest backgrounds has been a great success, with 98% of students passing their exams!
87% of the budget comes from management fee payment from 3 funds managed by Financière de l’Echiquier: Echiquier Excelsior, Echiquier Agressor and Echiquier Positive Impact Europe. External donors, whether clients or employees, contribute 13%. Donations to the Primonial Group Foundation are eligible for tax rebates.Make a donation
