As well as providing financial support to charities, the Foundation is also a real company project that allows staff at Groupe Primonial to come together in a commitment of solidarity.

Through its philanthropic actions, Fondation Groupe Primonial is fully in line with the commitments made under the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Projects funded by the Foundation contribute to six of these Goals :
