A dedicated vehicle, a sustainable philanthropic action

CIC Private Debt Foundation was created in 2020 with the aim of financing general interest projects and organizing the Management Company's philanthropic actions.

The creation of this vehicle dedicated to philanthropy reflects our desire to make a long-term commitment to society. By supporting public interest projects over several years, we hope to contribute in a concrete and direct way to the economic and social development of the French regions.

CIC Private Debt Foundation is administered by a Management Committee, composed of CIC Private Debt employees.

Support of 5 themes

Each year, the fund will support between 5 and 10 projects under 5 main themes :


Education & Inclusion

Sustainable development



CIC Private Debt Foundation is housed within the Fonds de Dotation Transatlantique, created by Banque Transatlantique in 2012, and thus benefits from the expertise and advice of a specialised team.

Examples of supported projects

H’up entrepreneurs (presence everywhere in France) : the association supports entrepreneurs with disabilities, whether they are creators or already in business, through several incubation programmes. The project supported by CIC Private Debt Foundation is H'up academy 2021, which enables a group of fifteen entrepreneurs to follow a demanding incubation programme combining individual support and group time over a year.

Action Philippe Streit (Anteuil, Doubs) : the aim of the association is to promote the professional reintegration of disabled workers in rural areas. The association offers "EA" / "ESAT" type companies employing disabled people an adapted work environment, with appropriate infrastructure and services.

Altrimenti (Paris and Seine-Saint-Denis) : the association partners with people being rehabilitated to collect fresh produce that is deemed “non-compliant” by traditional retailing channels. This produce is eligible for sale under organic labelling, and is brought by the association to the consumer via short distribution channels.

Start-up de Territoire x Ticket for Change (Strasbourg, Bas-Rhin) : this project is the partnership of two associations whose common objective is to activate the talents of everyone in the service of solutions favouring social, environmental and societal transition. In order to carry and boost these solutions, the entrepreneurs and committed citizens are accompanied by the local Start-up de Territoire incubator, and develop their skills thanks to specific educational tools offered by Ticket for Change. The trial phase of this partnership is taking place in Alsace, before a launch in other regions.
