Supporting charitable initiatives put forward by employees

Since 2014, the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation has awarded Commitment grants to charities sponsored by Lagardère group employees. Our aim is to accompany and encourage employees involved in charitable causes in connection with the Foundation’s areas of action (culture and sport, diversity, education and medical research). This is also a way for us to tell employees about the areas in which the Foundation is involved.

In 2019, three charities received grants after an internal vote (which each year also attracts a great deal of interest from employees): École à l’hôpital, presented by Caroline Minguez-Cunningham (Kwyk); Gribouilli, sponsored by Mélanie Ogier (Duty Free Global); and Des jeunes et des lettres, supported byNaïma Timzouert (Hachette Jeunesse).

The grants were awarded for the first time on the occasion of an afterwork event dedicated to commitment and organised with the LL Network.
We wanted to highlight the work done by these charities by inviting someone with an inspiring story.

With Martin Hirsch (General Director of Public Assistance – Hôpitaux de Paris and President of the Institut de l’Engagement) as guest of honour, the award ceremony was conducted under the banner of sharing experience and generosity.
