Where the foundation stands

Fondation Rémy Cointreau solely supports public-interest initiatives that protect the common good and intervenes according to specific criteria.

Fondation Rémy Cointreau also supports causes in favor of the preservation of terroir in France and abroad.

Its goal is to valorize and diversify cultural exchanges, while calling upon the strength of its internal network of partners.

Fondation Rémy Cointreau also intends to uplift projects that enable the sharing and transmission of exceptional savoir-faire or works of art, with a mission to help maintain their place for the long-term.

It is possible to elaborate upon common projects responding to these criteria while supporting collective goals.

The foundation plans to participate in collective exhibitions that spotlight creative trades or workshops, as well as all other exceptional savoir-faire. It encourages talents by creating scholarships and prizes and participating in the construction of artist residences.

A creative trade is essentially a manual technique, brought to life by an extremely qualified professional in the production of unique objects or a small series. All craftsman trades conjure the creator’s imagination and the ensemble of their skills.
