On 16 June, the Board of Directors of Fondation CNP Assurances renewed its support for the projects of three major partners: FAGE, a federation of student associations; SAUV, an association providing support in emergencies; and Fondation Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet de la Vocation, which promotes equal opportunities for young people. Fondation CNP Assurances is also committing to a new programme alongside the French Red Cross as part of its commitment to actively contribute to building a more civic and inclusive society.
Fondation CNP Assurances is committed to supporting concrete initiatives that reduce social health inequalities and save lives. Consistent with its commitment to the most vulnerable populations, the foundation’s Board of Directors has decided to provide financial support of €95k to the French Red Cross (CRF) programme, “Aller-vers en santé”, which fosters access to prevention and health rights for vulnerable individuals who are unable to benefit from these essential services. As part of the programme, the CRF is implementing local medico-social systems targeting the most vulnerable. The programme consists of four concrete actions, including a travelling medical office in the Lozère department, a health bus in St Martin, a social transport service in Pontarlier, and a mobile health and social team in the Ain department.
Three partnerships renewed
Fondation CNP Assurances is renewing its support for the FAGE project, “Un bus un campus”. With students becoming increasingly financially vulnerable, this initiative lends them support through special breaks via the UCPA national union of open-air sports centres. The breaks include accommodation, meals, supervised sports activities and transport at the price of €50 per person, compared with a regular price of €500. Fondation CNP Assurances has backed this initiative since 2020 and is confirming its commitment with €45k of support for the 2023 edition.
As part of its “saving lives” focus, the foundation is continuing its partnership with SAUV and its “Citoyens santé” programme. The partnership consists in training a community of citizens on first aid and the use of defibrillators, which are delivered free of charge. These citizens intervene rapidly during alerts, in addition to users of the Sauv Life app and medical professionals. Fondation CNP Assurances is renewing its financial support by allocating €100k for the 2023-2024 period. It is also planning fresh initiatives at seaside resorts (Sables d’Olonne, Besançon) and mountain cities (Grenoble).
Support for the projects of CNP Assurances employees
The foundation is pursuing its partnership with Fondation Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet de la Vocation, a programme that supports talented young people driven by a strong vocation and know-how but whose development is hampered by financial difficulties. The programme also fosters emulation among other young people, notably through events at schools. Fondation CNP Assurances is providing €40k in financial support for the 2023-2024 period.
The CNP Assurances Foundation supports the societal commitments of its employees by financing five projects relating to disability, health and education for €5,000, or a total of €25k.
