H&M Foundation

H&M Foundation

The H&M Foundation is an independent organisation that is working to drive long-lasting positive change for people and communities. The current focus areas for this work are Education, Clean Water and Strengthening Women.

The H&M Foundation complements H&M’s sustainability work. Since 2013 the Stefan Persson family has donated SEK 900 million to the Foundation. This donation enables real long term change for people and communities.

When choosing its three focus areas the Foundation asked H&M customers and employees for help. Through a global online voting process everyone had the chance to contribute. Based on this result, the H&M Foundation is focusing its work on:

Giving children the best start in life by investing in their early education and development. Read more.

Giving children a better future by investing in clean water and sanitation in schools. Read more.

Catalysing positive change by investing in women’s economic empowerment. Read more.

All three issues derive from the UN Millennium Development Goals. Prior to the voting, a group of experts helped selecting the different issues that were included in the voting process. The H&M Foundation is partnering with global as well as local organisations in order to achieve its goals within these focus areas, as quickly and effectively as possible.
