The Eres Foundation was created in 2018 by Eres, a consulting and management company specializing in profit sharing (employee savings, retirement savings and employee share ownership). Under the auspices of the Fondation de France, the Eres Foundation benefits from the control and support of France's leading philanthropy network.
A selection committee made up of group and strategic committee members meets regularly to select funded projects.
The foundation is financed by Eres et Eres Gestion, partly through a portion of the management fees of the Eres Sélection Partage & Solidaire mutual fund. This fund is the first market-sharing employee savings fund created by Eres Gestion in 2017.
