Types of support


Our selection criteria

The Societe Generale Foundation supports projects focusing on the professional integration or integration through education of marginalised people. To be supported over the course of a year, the project must meet five conditions:

SUITABILITY : the action must correspond to the Foundation’s areas of focus

AUDIENCE : the beneficiaries are people who have found themselves on the fringes of society due to economic, social or cultural difficulties

LOCATION : the project must be located in a country where Societe Generale operates and demonstrate a strong local focus

BUDGET : the amount requested must not be more than 30% of the action’s total cost and the structure can prove that the organisation has been operating for at least one year

IMPACT : the project’s targets are tangible, identified and measurable

Our call for projects

The Societe Generale Foundation organizes three calls for projects every year, in February, June and November. Applications can be submitted directly online from the first to the last day of the month. Depending on the direction taken by the Board of Directors, some calls for projects can be thematic. No requests for financial support will be examined outside this context.

The Foundation's next call for projects will take place from 6 to 24 January  2021.

Crowdfunding projects

Throughout the year, in partnership with Ulule, the Foundation commits to help associations with their crowdfunding campaigns and to support them by making a donation to their campaign. 

So, the Foundation will match the contributions received by any association that works in France and that meets the eligibility criteria.
