Our Engagements

Giving back to the world, society and communities

What we care about

We place great emphasis on our engagements at Cartier. It’s essential for the Maison to give back to the world, society and the communities around us. Through the years, we have established a variety of commitments which enable us to make a positive impact through cultural, ethical, social and environmental initiatives.

Fondation Cartier

On October 20, 1984, Cartier launched the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. With its pioneering visionary approach to patronage, the Fondation Cartier invented a new approach to exhibition-making, multi-disciplinary in nature and characterized by a spirit of curiosity and inquiry.



Cartier Philanthropy is committed to improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable people living in the least developed regions. Created in 2012, the foundation partners with not-for-profit organizations that are impact-driven in the areas of women’s economic and social development, access to basic services, responsible management of natural resources and humanitarian assistance.



Established in 1983, the Cartier Collection brings together more than 1,600 jewels, watches, clocks and precious objects, illustrative of the Maison’s history of style. Since the first major exhibition in 1989 at the Petit Palais in Paris, this collection has been hosted by more than thirty internationally renowned museums and cultural institutions, in particular on the occasion of stand-alone exhibitions. 



Founded in 2006, the Cartier Women's Initiative Awards is an annual international business plan competition established in 2006 by Cartier in partnership with INSEAD Business School and McKinsey & Company that aims to drive change by empowering entrepreneurs. The competition is open to women-run, for-profit businesses in any country and sector working to create strong social impact. Since its creation, over 18,600 women from around the world have applied. 198 businesses from 49 countries have been supported and 80% of these businesses are still in activity today.
