In addition to providing non-profit associations with financial assistance, the Foundation also encourages sponsors and business units to donate materials. For construction, these donations often determine whether a project is completed or not.
Donation in your country
There are certain rules around donating materials, which differ from one country to another. What if you were the director of a business unit, head of a brand, etc., and tomorrow you made such a donation?

In France, Saint-Gobain Solidarités
In March 2016, the Association of Saint-Gobain Group Retirees created the Saint-Gobain Solidarités non-profit association supported by the Group General Management. This association is open to everyone: legal entities, companies or EIGs belonging to the Group, Group employees or retirees.
The Saint-Gobain Solidarités Association was created to establish lasting and intergenerational ties between employee and retiree volunteers. The purpose is to develop solidarity actions in France benefiting individuals or legal entities compliant with the Saint-Gobain Group’s Environmental and Social responsibility, alongside those actions directly supported by the Foundation.
The Association puts Saint-Gobain Group companies in touch with charitable associations in need of materials. Consequently, Saint-Gobain Solidarités facilitates the donation of Group materials as part of sponsorship projects.
In the two years it has existed, the Saint-Gobain Solidarités Association has been involved in about 15 operations of which eight have been completed or are near completion.
