Ourea, Capital Croissance’s philanthropic fund

Capital Croissance’s
philanthropic fund

Housed in the Fonds de Dotation Transatlantique, Ourea was created in 2019 with the aim to finance public interest projects and organise the skill-based sponsorship’s actions of Capital Croissance to offer an innovative model of entrepreneurial philanthropy.

5 supported themes

Every year, Ourea supports a dozen of projects falling within the five following themes, in line with Capital Croissance’s values and DNA

To be studied, the projects must be eligible to the sponsorship tax system as defined by the General Tax Code, article 200







Ourea benefits from a lasting capital endowment, through annual contributions.
It is collected annually from our philanthropic entrepreneurs who happen to be the subscribers of the funds managed by Capital Croissance and the management company’s team.


Ourea is administered by a Selection Committee, made of members of the Capital Croissance’s team.
Agnès Lamoureux (former communication director of Fondation de France) is Ourea’s patron and spearheads proposals.


The philanthropic fund Ourea supports a dozen of projects per year, for amounts ranging from €3 000 to €20 000 per project.
