Social impact companies
Corporate foundations, philanthropy and sponsorship

More and more companies, regardless of their size or industry sector, are aiming to have a positive impact on social, environmental or societal issues. Since few of them can reach this goal through their own activities, they choose to implement a philanthropic project, the effects of which can be assessed over the long term.

Cornillier Avocats, which devotes a large part of its activity to supporting non-profit organisations, is recognised for its expertise in sponsorship and philanthropy.

Cornillier Avocats assists companies in the design and implementation of their philanthropic projects, which may consist of simple financial or material support or the creation of a structure dedicated to philanthropic actions (foundations, endowment funds).

Within the framework of these projects, Cornillier Avocats guides companies in identifying their needs in order to structure their philanthropic strategy and to choose and set up the most suitable legal vehicle. In conjunction with chartered accountants, the firm also assists its clients in identifying the necessary means and resources and in drawing up the budget.
