The Club Med Foundation

The Club Med Foundation was created in 1978; it’s one of the oldest foundations to have been created by a company. It’s an integral part of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programme, ‘Happy to Care’.

The Foundation: fostering solidarity

Having led the way when it comes to encouraging employee involvement in CSR initiatives, the Club Med Foundation is continuing to move forward, shaping new ways to support good causes that utilise not just the time and skills of staff but the entire Club Med value chain, for the benefit of local charities: from financial support to supplier involvement, from giving or loaning out equipment to donating holidays, from employee engagement to customer engagement.

It focuses on two priority areas, drawing on the support of key partners identified near Club Med’s sites and selected for the effectiveness of their work:

  • Youth: education and recreation for vulnerable young people
  • Environment: protection of biodiversity

GMs at the heart of the action

More than ever, our customers, or GMs, are showing us they are ‘happy to share’ and the Foundation offers them multiple different ways to contribute to its work.

Fundraising: GMs can support the Foundation’s work financially. This can be at parties or sporting/recreational events at the resorts or outside of their holidays through online auctions and prize draws.

It is also possible to make a donation when booking a holiday or year-round on the Friends of the Foundation website.
Every penny of the secure donations goes to the projects and charities the Foundation helps.
