HOW TO USE
The principle of the Foundation is to provide financial support to existing associations.
Any employee who has been with the company for more than twelve months may submit a proposal in connection with one of the three areas identified by the Foundation.
The proposed project may serve an association, a self-help organization or a student organization.
- A presentation of the association and its purpose
- A description of the project submitted to the Foundation specifying the theme to which it relates
- A letter of motivation written by the employee who submitted the application
- A detailed budget
Annual participation of each subsidiary, up to 1% of the OCR, with a minimum overall commitment of €100,000 per year.
The selection of applications is entrusted to the Foundation's Steering Committee, which is made up of its director and a representative from each country.
The committee meets every three months to examine the applications and decide on their admissibility.
Among the criteria examined are the motivation of the representatives of the association and the sponsor*, the number of senior beneficiaries, the originality of the project and the possibility of other employees joining in. The project must be carried out within one year of the application.
* The sponsor is not necessarily the one who implements it,
which implies that other employees of the company or of other brands of the group can take part in it
The scope of actions and projects extends to the countries where Damartex is present (France, Belgium, UK, Germany, Tunisia).
The sponsor is the Foundation's main contact in its dealings with the sponsored association.
He or she will make sure to promote the association to colleagues and management in order to encourage as many employees as possible to become involved in the proposed actions or to consider new opportunities for its development.
The sponsor undertakes to follow the project throughout its life and to produce regular reports on its progress.
He/she will immediately inform the Foundation if the project encounters difficulties in its implementation or if he/she notices that the money is diverted from its intended use.
