The CMA CGM Corporate Foundation launches its 2018 Call for proposals to promote equal opportunities for children from underprivileged backgrounds

Appel Fondation 2018

The CMA CGM Corporate Foundation is launching its sixth Call for proposals. This year, the Foundation will support projects aimed at promoting equal opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds in France (exclusively in the PACA region) and in Lebanon. A total budget of 160,000 Euros will be divided between the projects received in France and in Lebanon.

The amount of financial aid, between 5,000 to 35,000 Euros, will be granted to projects aimed at improving life conditions, the well-being and personal fulfilment of children coming from underprivileged backgrounds, on one of the following areas:

  • reducing educational inequalities, maintaining or restoring a school setting;
  • access to adapted cultural, sports or leisure activities;
  • support for equipment to maintain or reinstate family ties;
  • support for equipment enabling the improvement of living conditions in collective reception areas;
  • support for projects that promote digital integration (a process that aims to make digital technology accessible to all children)

The specifications and application form are available on the CMA CGM Corporate Foundation’s website.

All applications must be submitted online, until February 16, 2018 (
