EFFECTIVE PHILANTHROPY WITH AN ENDURING IMPACT

“Modern philanthropy is committed to clear goals, evidence-based, data-driven strategies, rigorous accountability and meticulous evaluation, enabling it to continually improve how it helps people to lift themselves out of hardship, strengthen their capacities and find their own way to thrive.”

The foundation

Cartier Philanthropy is the Maison Cartier’s philanthropic foundation.
Its creation in Geneva was a pivotal moment in Cartier’s philanthropic journey, having supported many charitable initiatives over the years, and marked the full adoption of a data-driven, outcome-oriented approach for enduring impact.
Driven by the ideal of freeing everyone’s potential, Cartier Philanthropy works to improve the lives of the most vulnerable, in particular women and children living in the world’s least developed regions.

Cartier Philanthropy works in complete independence of the Maison Cartier’s business, while sharing its high professional standards and values.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND PREPAREDNESS

Cartier Philanthropy provides aid that saves lives, relieves suffering and reduces the number of casualties. It also helps communities improve their preparedness for emergencies.

“As a benefactor, we have a responsibility to invest efficiently in programs that make an enduring positive difference in people’s lives. We therefore partner with non-profits that are impact-driven and measure progress from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective.”
