CELEBRATING 5 YEARS OF EFFECTIVE PHILANTHROPY
“Cartier Philanthropy is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year.
During this time, the foundation has moved confidently from promise to progress, bringing to life our ambition of freeing everyone’s potential.”
President of the Foundation Council, Cartier Philanthropy
CEO of Cartier
The Cartier Charitable Foundation was created in 2012 to catalyse the Maison Cartier’s philanthropic commitment to promoting women’s rights, alleviating poverty, and supporting initiatives that open the door to a better future for those most in need.
The Foundation is guided by its founder's principles of excellence, pioneering and generosity, but acts in complete independence from the commercial activities of the Maison Cartier.
OUR FOUR AREAS OF INTERVENTION
ACCESS TO BASIC SERVICES
The foundation ensures children and their families drink clean water, have enough to eat, use proper sanitation, go to school and receive medical care when they are sick.
RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES
The foundation helps small farmers and fishermen to manage the natural resources they live on responsibly, and to safeguard their ecosystems.
WOMEN'S SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
To achieve gender equity, the foundation empowers women to recover from violence and to access skills, knowledge and resources to earn a living and gain self-confidence.
EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND PREPAREDNESS
The foundation provides aid that saves lives, relieves suffering and reduces the number of casualties. It also helps communities to be more prepared to resist shocks.
THE WORLD WE WANT
We believe everyone has the right to live a meaningful and fulfilling life in an inclusive, equitable and safe environment. Our ambition is to help free everyone’s potential, removing the barriers that prevent people from acting and thriving. We work to find ways of breaking the spiral of poverty, addressing its underlying causes and generating positive change across the generations.
“Effective philanthropy with an enduring impact. That’s our foundation’s imperative as it works to improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable.”
