THE WELL-BEING OF THE CHILD IS CENTRAL
Mission – The Cool Foundation aims to financially contribute to the development of children in disadvantaged situations around the world to create a more inclusive society. Inclusivity is at the core of our foundation.
The Foundation focuses on projects that contribute to the following topics:
Method – On behalf of The Fashion Group Solutions’ brands, the Foundation financially contributes or provides access to funding to disadvantaged children at high risk of poverty, always with the aim of supporting children’s social development worldwide by giving them a chance to leave poverty behind and have access to a brighter future.
The Foundation focusses on children in its home country and in the countries where the fashion labels of Fashion Group Solutions (FGS) – within the Cool Investments Group – produce their clothes. In addition, the foundation supports children in countries that the Group has a special connection with.
Although we do not want to limit ourselves to the structure below, the Foundation determines which goals are supported according to the following division:
The Cool Foundation favors and gives priority to long-term projects which enable long-term benefits, and to recurring projects that are promoted for a maximum of two years. This enables a high degree of diversity of the projects. The financed projects vary in focus between health, education, and culture.
Cool Foundation is an independent foundation established in 1999. It was funded by the Cool Investments Group – including the real state division – and its labels under Fashion Group Solutions: America Today, MS Mode, Coolcat Junior and Sapph. The Foundation is acknowledged by the Dutch government as an ANBI foundation, meaning that it is entirely committed to public interest. The main focus of the Foundation is on the original target group of the first label of Cool Investments: children.
Our board is made up of four members: three board members and an external member.
