The Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation

Since 1989, the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation has supported and encouraged the development of young talent. It has created a number of programmes to promote cultural diversity and encourage success. The Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation is fully engaged in the fields of culture, education and community.

Young people from the Divertimento Academy (France).

Committed to promoting culture

The leading sponsor of young French-speaking creatives, the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation awarded grants 1 to 19 talented young people with original and innovative projects in the areas of culture and the media.

2018 was a successful year for previous grant winners, such as Véronique de Viguerie (Photographer 2006), the first woman in 20 years to be awarded the Paris Match News "Visa d'or" for her coverage of the war in Yemen.

Wanting to encourage the dissemination of cultural diversity, the Foundation is continuing its partnership with the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA). In addition to the jointly created literary award, it supports monthly literary events with authors who come to talk about the Arab world.

Lastly, the Foundation remains a partner of the Orchestre Symphonique Divertimento, headed by Zahia Ziouani, whose aim is to bring the symphonic canon to everyone, particularly in a number of disadvantaged areas. It supports the orchestra's Academy, which each year trains around 500 young people in orchestral music practice.

1 One grant per category: Documentary Filmmaker, Animated Filmmaker, Digital Artist, Writer, Print Journalist, Bookseller, Musician (jazz and classical, contemporary music), Photographer, Film Producer and Television Scriptwriter.

The Commitment grants


The Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation awarded two Commitment grants - each worth €10,000 - to charities sponsored by employees of the Group involved in community causes.
These grants will enable the first charity, SOS Les Enfants D'Abord, to build and fit out a preschool classroom in Cameroon. The second charity, En avant toute(s), will support more young women who are victims of violence by putting them in touch with professionals thanks to a free, anonymous chatroom.
