The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations

A family tradition

Impact and effectiveness

Impact and effectiveness

Philanthropy is part of the Rothschild family’s traditions, just like banking. With a direct reporting line to the family, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations are managed completely independently from the Group. With the focus firmly on impact and effectiveness and with a humanist spirit, the foundations take a strategic approach to philanthropy.

Whether it is with individuals, companies, governments, civil society or other foundations, we combine the energy and the resources necessary to find solutions to current challenges. By overturning the barriers between sectors and communities, each one finds its strength and becomes a catalyst of change. Through the bold programmes we develop, we build multiple bridges between the world of today and the multi-faceted and collaborative world of tomorrow.
