The sheltered foundations

The Foundation for the Université de Lyon shelters 26 foundations placed under its aegis. It thus offers them a legal framework, an administrative support, the insurance of general interest and the advantages of a foundation recognized for its public utility. Sheltered foundations can thus focus on the heart of their actions.

They act in various fields. From medicine to support for the voluntary sector, from supporting research to developing entrepreneurship actions, from aid to initial training to funding student and association actions, from humanitarian assistance to the fields of advanced research, all have contributed to sustaining the territory, to giving birth to projects, to funding enthusiasm, in a word: making things possible.
