1) Objective

The ELLE Foundation, created in 2004 by the Lagardere Active Group in France, embodies those objectives, still relevant today, by pursuing them beyond the pages of the magazine. The Foundation is based on the magazine’s founding principle: “to support the advancement, the emancipation and the role of women in our society”. As a result, its mission is to financially support projects which promote women’s emancipation through education, vocational training and information. Its purpose is to use education as a tool for girls’ and women’s emancipation. The term education is taken in a broad context (schooling, the elimination of illiteracy, high school education and vocational training).

2) Eligibility

The project must be submitted by an NGO governed by the French 1901 Association Act. However, if the charity does not fulfil that condition, it can find a French “umbrella-charity” which will receive the funds and be responsible for the allocation of those funds.

3) Location

The ELLE Foundation supports initiatives conducted worldwide (so far they have supported projects in Kenya, Morocco, Haiti, India, South Sudan, Guatemala, Mexico, Cambodia or Mali).

4) Budget

No upper and lower budget limits are provided but grants tend to be small.

5) Application

Grant requests can be submitted anytime and the Board of Administrators convenes twice a year. Only projects already examined are presented. The proposal and budget template can be downloaded from their website and sent by email to info.fondation@lagardere-active.com or by post.
