Gecina Foundation

Our employees share the commitments made by our Foundation. Our actions are built around their dedication.

Creating a culture of solidarity

We build strong engagement among our employees to enhance our collective reviews on societal issues, helping develop a true “culture of solidarity”. This engagement helps each of our employees to develop their skills and understand the environmental and societal stakes involved.

A Foundation to take action

The year 2022 was marked by the appointment of Beñat Ortega as a director and vice-president of the Foundation and Frédérique Lecomte as a director representing the Environment & Biodiversity axis

Four areas of work

We open up our CSR approach to civil society in order to go above and beyond our business commitments.

People with disabilities

We aim to improve the living conditions of people with disabilities.

Protecting nature

Our activity focuses on the preservation or rehabilitation of nature sites and biodiversity.

Housing for underprivileged communities

We are committed to facilitating access to housing for as many people as possible

Promoting heritage

Cultural and artistic heritage is a rich resource for all of us. Through our actions, we help preserve and promote this heritage.

Committed employees!

The Gecina Foundation encourages and gives our employees the opportunity to actively participate in the associative life of their company. Each project supported by the Foundation is carried out by a mentor who follows it up, shares it and is involved by contributing his or her expertise.

Our commitment and our employees’ engagement are reflected in the concrete results achieved.

Our flagship projects

Partnership between Fondation du Patrimoine and the Gecina Foundation to secure the Paris Region’s at-risk heritage sites


Fondation du Patrimoine is being supported with €5 million (over 3 years) for the “Plus jamais ça !” program to preserve at-risk heritage sites in the Paris Region.

Participation of 14 of the Gecina Foundation’s partner associations in the 2021 "Vendredi Solidaire"

In 2021, all of Gecina’s employees devoted one day of their work time to support 14 non-profit associations - which were all partners of the Gecina Foundation - mobilized for this day at 26 different sites across the Paris Region.

Support of agroforestry projects with GoodPlanet


Through its sponsorship with GoodPlanet, Gecina supports 6 agroforestry projects and thus accompanies the ecological transition of farmers towards an agriculture that regenerates soil, water and biodiversity.
