-financial philanthropy and guidance for non-profit projects promoting the economic independence and social well-being of girls and women.
-direct technical assistance and the transfer of know-how mobilizing CHANEL employees within their various areas of expertise.
The Foundation is 100% funded by the company CHANEL


Fondation Chanel supports and accompanies projects improving the living standards and economic independence of women and their communities. It also plays a role in promoting women in the arts and culture.
