H&M Foundation

The H&M Foundation is a non-profit global foundation, privately funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and main owners of H&M. Its mission is to drive long lasting positive change and improve living conditions by investing in people, communities and innovative ideas.

The H&M Foundation is an independent legal entity operating beyond the H&M group’s value chain with its own staff, strategy and board.

Through partnerships with experienced organisations around the world, the H&M Foundation works within the areas of Education, Water, Equality and Planet. In addition to this, we can also provide emergency relief.

Since 2013, the family has donated 1.1 billion Swedish krona to the H&M Foundation.

Our strategy

Our mission is to act as a catalyst for positive change for people and communities. We want to enable real impact through partnerships with ambitious goals.

Through our partnerships with organisations around the globe, the H&M Foundation works both on a global scale, creating systemic change with transformative programs, as well as in local projects to directly address urgent needs. We inspire and push our partners to be innovative in their methods in order to develop and break new grounds. By involving people in what we do, we create awareness and real impact.
