What it is ?

The local endowment fund against poverty collects voluntary contributions from businesses, representing up to 2% of their net income, and allocates them to fund local projects to alleviate poverty among young people.

In participating, each business undertakes to support one or more local projects of its choice for a period of three years.

“I would encourage all local authorities to take part in this initiative, which is the only one with a long-term impact and that actually works”

Marine Jeantet, Interministerial delegate for the prevention of and fight against poverty.

How does the local fund work ?

The local fund was created in response to the two following issues:

there are insufficient resources to scale up high-impact community projects in favor of underprivileged youth and roll them out comprehensively;

-despite wanting to get involved in humanitarian projects, only 1.6% of companies actually sponsor such initiatives, often due to a lack of resources and in-house expertise in the matter.

The local endowment fund against poverty addresses these two issues in just 4 steps.

Diagnostic territorial des besoins

needs by region

Prioritising action for maximum impact

Identification des projets locaux

local projects

Selecting turnkey projects using several key criteria: how acute the need is, the efficiency of  the solution, the scalability of the solution, and how established the organisation is

Mobilisation des entreprises locales

local businesses

Suivi de l'avancement des projets & mesure d'impact

of each projects

Participating businesses are provided with half-yearly progress reports

Nationwide rollout of the local funds

After conducting three successful pilot projects in Nantes, Romans-sur-Isère and Béthune, which raised more than €1 million to finance over 20 initiatives and assist 10,000 young people in need, the Break Poverty Foundation  is currently extending the local funds with the aim of providing aid across 50 regions to 100,000 beneficiaries by 2022.

To do this, we assist local stakeholders (local authorities, regional foundations and employer networks) set up the project, from A to Z and at no charge!
