Our responsibility

The Berlin-based BNP Paribas Foundation was established in August 2015 as a foundation trust. It supports projects in Germany in the areas of education, the arts and culture.It provides support, in particular, for children and young people who have to overcome hurdles and barriers in their personal lives – for example, as a result of being socially disadvantaged, disabled or coming from a migration or refugee background.

As a foundation which is part of a global financial group, the BNP Paribas Foundation supports the principles of international dialogue. The projects it supports bring together young people from different backgrounds and origins and, in this way, contribute to cross-cultural understanding and solidarity.
