Assistance to staff members for their personal projects

  • 01.07.2003
Launched late in 2002 over Echo'net by the BNP Paribas Foundation, the "Coup de Pouce" assistance program is intended to encourage public interest initiatives in which BNP Paribas employees are involved on a personal basis.

Members of the patronage committee, who were greatly impressed by the quality of projects and the commitment demonstrated by staff members, selected 35 of the 49 proposals received on time and offered assistance ranging from €600 to €2,000.

Nearly half of all the projects aimed at helping children and adolescents involved the handicapped, followed by humanitarian actions, the fight against social exclusion, and healthcare issues.
