The Fondation de l’Orangerie for Individual Philanthropy was set up by BNP Paribas Wealth Management and is exclusively dedicated to its clients. The Foundation’s social mission is to “foster world’s patrimony and knowledge and forward them to future generations”. Its role is to welcome donations from its clients and allocate them in the most efficient manner to rigorously selected projects that are transparent and original.
In 2010, the IDF Life for a Child Programme was the recipient of a very generous donation from the Fondation de l’Orangerie and its donors. Spread over two years, the initial donation helped ensure the sustainability and expansion of Life for a Child. In May 2012 the Fondation exceptionally renewed the Programme's grant, extending it for a further two years. These funds will be used to help introduce and facilitate self-monitoring of blood glucose for thousands of children and youth.
