The bank for a changing world

BNP Paribas Foundation

Supporting and growing. We spot the talents, the innovative projects, and the personalities that are helping to change the world. And we strive to make them grow and prosper! Supporting them over the long term, making them known and showcasing them, making their projects sustainable, whether they are cultural, social or environmental... This is our ambition!
