Because everyone’s well-being is at the heart of our concerns, the Kereis Group has decided to go one step further in its corporate philanthropy initiatives, one of the key areas of our CSR approach.
The aim? To support initiatives of general interest.
Created in April 2023, the Kereis 4 Impact Endowment Fund aims to have an impact on society. And particularly on the 4 issues identified as priorities:
- Preventing health risks
- Support for children and students
- Medical research
- Social integration
Today, 14 projects are supported by Kereis 4 Impact. They were chosen by the Fund’s Board of Directors on the recommendation of the regional selection committee, made up of Group employees and the CSR team.

Board of Directors
Chaired by Philippe GRAVIER, the Board of Directors of the Kereis 4 Impact Endowment Fund sets the Fund’s strategic orientations, defines its action program and allocates its resources to any project of general interest within the scope of its purpose.

Project selection method
The selection method combines two distinct, non-hierarchical channels:
- The regional Selection Committee pre-selects the projects proposed by employees.
- The CSR team follows the same process, identifying public-interest organizations with a national scope.
Internal calls for projects run from March to June each year.
