About us

Build a future for disadvantaged children

The Wavestone Foundation was born out of the desire of the founders, Pascal Imbert and Michel Dancoisne to mobilize the business for a cause which was close to their hearts: disadvantaged children. We support a diverse range of organizations which strive to build a better future for children throughout the world.

The Wavestone Foundation endeavours to support initiatives which take a development approach. When choosing the projects it supports, the Foundation pays particularly close attention to their long-term nature and the way in which they empower the beneficiaries.

Every year the Wavestone Foundation accepts and finances around 10 projects proposed to it by a diverse range of organizations, to a maximum amount of €10,000 per project.

The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is made up of four representatives from the Wavestone consultancy, as well as two external experts:
