The L’Oréal Foundation supports only general-interest projects conducted by non-profit organisations. These projects must come within the Foundation’s two areas of action, which are:
Science: promoting research, in particular the place of women in science, and spreading scientific knowledge.
Beauty for all: helping people in difficult social circumstances or experiencing physical or psychological problems to regain self-esteem by taking care of their appearance; helping people in precarious circumstances to reintegrate into society by training for a career in the beauty sector.
The Foundation also takes the following conditions of eligibility into account :
- The project must be of a practical, original and socially innovative nature;
- The project must be signed up for the long term;
- The project must include an evaluation component to measure the impact on beneficiaries;
- The possibility of L’Oréal employees getting involved in the project.
The L’Oréal Foundation does not fund cultural, sporting or promotional events, or one-off projects such as galas or fairs. Nor does it support school trips, humanitarian missions, scholarships/grants or projects conducted by religious, denominational or political organisations.
