Foundations and philanthropy

Facilitating professional and social integration has been a cornerstone of Safran's patronage policy and Foundations and of many initiatives rolled out in the Group. Support for talented young musicians making their professional debut, social and professional assistance for young people with disabilities or from disadvantaged backgrounds, equal opportunities through education: several hundred patronage projects and initiatives have been introduced to date, which are part of Safran’s commitment to society (which is one of the four pillars of the Group’s CSR strategy).

Philanthropic actions focused on education

Safran is convinced of the importance of education in each individual's personal journey, and its role as a vector of integration and equal opportunities. It has therefore chosen to support educational and cultural initiatives: the fight against illiteracy and disengagement from formal education, introductions to the arts, access to science, etc. In this way, independently of its own commercial interests, Safran provides financial support to public or private partners. Safran's patronage program, unlike its Foundations, has a budget that is allocated on a year-by-year basis. A sum had initially been planned, but the Covid-19 pandemic has considerably restricted aeronautical activity and impacted our Group. This economic crisis has led to the suspension of the financial resources that would normally have been assigned to our patronage initiatives for 2021.

The Safran Corporate Foundation for Integration

The Safran Corporate Foundation for Integration works to support young people with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds. Its work focuses on professional integration projects delivered by associations with an awareness of the difficulties faced by young people for whom professional integration is difficult or impossible, and the specific circumstances for disabled young people, helping them to find jobs in everyday environments. A significant effort is also made to deliver social integration projects, as an individual integration project can only really succeed when all possible difficulties are taken into account. Housing, culture and sport are, in the eyes of the Foundation, key areas of action for these young people; they are also often effective entry points for reintegration.

The Safran Corporate Foundation for Music

A unique arts patronage scheme: Safran's Corporate Foundation for Music supports talented young musicians as they start their professional journeys to become leading lights in the classical music world of tomorrow. It has provided several generations of young people with tailored help to assist them through music industry changes: scholarships, support for first recordings, assistance in acquiring instruments. It also organizes an annual competition to award the Safran Foundation Prize for Music. The brilliant pianist Virgile Roche was 2020's winner. Nearly 150 artists have received support since 2005. The Foundation's work also involves live performance, which is vital for these young people: the Foundation has formed partnerships (some of them long-term) with a number of associations and institutions to afford them opportunities to perform before audiences.
