About The BNP Paribas Foundation
The BNP Paribas Foundation acts on three fields of action: culture, solidarity and the environment. The BNP Paribas Foundation is committed to promoting social inclusion via two projects: Projet Banlieues and Odyssée jeunes.
Projet Banlieues aims at helping disadvantaged and disabled young people by getting people back to work and by helping them to set up their own business, supporting local social initiatives and boosting educational programs for young people.
Odyssée jeunes aims at funding school field trips in seine-saint-denis. In eight years, Odyssée Jeunes has enabled 40,000 children to take part in one of 1000 educational and cultural trips in several countries! In 2014, Odyssée Jeunes entered a new phase. To support the increasingly dynamic educational teams, we have redesigned the way our program works. Now it offers the opportunity to develop multidisciplinary educational projects that last over several school years.
The Help2Help program, which is now available in nearly 30 countries, follows the Coup de pouce program launched in 2003, in which the Foundation supports solidarity and humanitarian projects supported by the bank employees involved in personally and voluntarily in charities.
Founded in 2016, VerticalSoft is a French “Social and Solidarity Economy Enterprise” (“ESS Enterprise”). It offers charities and foundations an integrated software solution, based on Salesforce, a global leader in CRM, to easily manage donations, memberships, events, and online funding requests. VerticalSoft’s collaborative tools also include membership and donor management (CRM), website creation and marketing automation to enable charities to collaborate, change their image, attract talent, and most importantly, attract more donors by publishing visible and measurable results of their social actions. VerticalSoft has already enabled 1986 charities to post 6772 charitable projects.
