Since its creation in 2006, the Foundation has been active in the field of professional integration and of integration through education, notably through sports or culture.
"The Foundation reflects the confidence Societe Generale holds in the future"
Frédéric Oudéa, CEO of Societe Generale and President of the Foundation
The Foundation supports structures which help vulnerable people find a job, allows them to access employment support projects or Integration Project Workshops, guides them professionally, supports them during their entrepreneurial journey or provides them with the needed tools to overcome obstacles to employment. By encouraging employment as a means of inclusion, the Foundation and its partner associations offer long-term and successful integration.
INTEGRATION THROUGH EDUCATION
The Foundation also focuses on integration through education, mostly for young people. Support is vital to allow young people in a vulnerable situation to integrate long-term and to thrive. The Foundation supports associations whose diverse actions meet the different needs of the beneficiaries: educational projects using sport and cultural activities to encourage integration, access to training, to courses leading to diplomas in hiring sectors, preventing school drop-out, workplace visits, mentoring…
In a difficult economic context, now more than ever, the Foundation is involved in fighting against inequality.
With a capital of 4 million euros in 2019, the Foundation supports around a hundred projects every year. The Foundation is active in France and abroad, in the countries within Societe Generale's footprint.
