We are committed to improving the lives of vulnerable communities in low-income countries around the world, with a particular focus on women and children. With the right support and access to new opportunities and choices, we believe that those living in extreme poverty can actively shape their own destinies and begin to thrive.
We fund non-profit organisations that address the multiple challenges of poverty. We provide support across four key areas.
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, we are governed by Swiss law and operate under the supervision of the Federal Supervisory Board for Foundations of the Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs in Bern. We are funded by Cartier but operate in full independence from its commercial interests.
Cartier Philanthropy’s dedication to mitigating the challenges faced by the world’s least-developed regions is a reminder that we all have the potential – and therefore the duty – to take action
