From promise to progress, Cartier Philanthropy is celebrating a decade of effective philanthropy focused on building stronger societies through collective impact.

“A milestone such as a 10-year anniversary is an excellent time to reflect on the accomplishments and lessons learned of the past decade, while also looking ahead and planning for the future,” says Cartier Philanthropy Strategic Advisor Pascale de la Frégonnière.

“We have big goals, but seeing the impact already achieved by our dedicated, resourceful and innovative partners confirms my belief that we’re on the right path. The increased uncertainty and ongoing challenges of the past few years add to the urgency and responsibility we have to support solutions that work and make them available to the greatest number.

“This year we are honouring the resilient people who have overcome great obstacles to improve their lives through access to better social and economic opportunities, celebrating our partners’ work and commitment, and accelerating our contribution to the wider philanthropic efforts while we keep learning and improving.”

With a strategic and collaborative approach, Cartier Philanthropy has invested CHF 100 million and partnered with 80 non-profit organisations to implement rigorous solutions to poverty challenges based on clear goals, evidence and data-driven strategies. These partners share our values of trust, integrity, respect and compassion, have a proven track record of creating positive impact and the ambition to scale their work to benefit as many people as possible.

Cartier Philanthropy has focused on the key areas of Women’s social and economic development, Access to basic services (water & sanitation, education, health and nutrition), Sustainable livelihoods and ecosystems, and Emergency response. We will be putting the spotlight on one of these four thematics per quarter in 2022, starting now with women’s empowerment - women being at the centre of all areas of work.

We hope you will join us throughout the year to learn more about the initiatives we’ve supported and engage in dialogue on key learnings. We’ll also share more information on the way forward to effectively allow everyone to realise their potential.
