The RAJA-Danièle Marcovici Foundation was created in 2006 on the initiative of Danièle Kapel Marcovici, CEO of the RAJA Group. Placed under the aegis of the Fondation de France, the Foundation supports projects in France and around the world in favour of women’s empowerment.
The governance of the Foundation is entrusted to an Executive Committee comprising representatives of the RAJA Group and independent experts. The Committee is responsible for defining the Foundation’s strategic orientations and selecting the projects it supports.
A permanent team is responsible for pre-selecting project proposals for consideration by the Executive Committee, as well as keeping track of the progress of current projects with our partner associations. The members of the permanent team also run information and fund-raising campaigns with the Group’s employees, via the RAJApeople programme. The team also handles external relations with the associative world, the sector of the social and solidarity economy and with all the Foundation’s partners: Foundations, private and public financers, institutional actors, media.
