The Ardian Foundation’s 10 year anniversary

31st October 2021

On 14th October 2021, the Ardian Foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary.

This day, dedicated to solidarity, was celebrated in the various Ardian offices around the world and was an opportunity for employees to enjoy a moment of charitable action, a change from the everyday life.

In Paris, Unis-Cité and the Ardian Foundation organized two half-days of giving back with residents of the retirement home, Ephad Les Adrets, and with children with autism from the charity Agir et Vivre l'Autisme.

In the United Kingdom, local partner charities and employees shared a breakfast.

In New York City, Ardian employees cooked hot meals for people with serious and chronic illnesses.

This symbolic anniversary was a great opportunity to review the major events at the Ardian Foundation over the recent years:

  • Launch of Click & Give: an internal application dedicated to philanthropic projects

  • 64 employee projects supported since 2016

  • €500,000 raised for the Covax project run by UNICEF through the first international sports challenge

  • 8 countries where the Foundation is present

  • 23 projects supported outside of France

  • Launch of the "Social Mobility and Education Policies" chair with the Paris School of Economics (PSE) and the DEPP (Ministry of Education)

The Ardian Foundation is proud of the progress made over the past 10 years and would like to thank all the employees who have financially supported the Foundation's actions or who have devoted part of their time to charities.
