Cartier Philanthropy


Cartier Philanthropy is a grant-making foundation established in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2012.

Guided by the standard of excellence of the Maison Cartier, but entirely independent from its commercial activities, Cartier Philanthropy strives to help free everyone’s potential, enabling people to live a meaningful and fulfilling life in an inclusive, equitable and safe environment.

To improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable in the world’s least developed regions, the foundation partners with non-profit organisations that are impact-driven, excel in their fields of expertise, share our values of trust, integrity and respect, and whose programmes are aligned with the areas we care about most:

  • access to basic services (water & sanitation, education, nutrition, primary healthcare);
  • women’s social and economic development;
  • responsible management of natural resources;
  • emergency response and preparedness.
