Our Purpose

"To achieve lasting change, you must think not only of yourself but also of others".
Daniel Swarovski
The Swarovski Foundation was set up in 2013 to honor the philanthropic spirit of Daniel Swarovski, who founded the crystal business over 125 years ago in Austria. Our mission is to build on this heritage by supporting charitable organizations working in three areas: fostering culture and creativity, promoting human empowerment and preserving the environment.

We support efforts to increase access to the creative industry through education, jobs, design, and innovation.

We support charities to increase youth and gender rights through education and empowerment programs.

We support organizations to foster the protection of water and biodiversity through education and climate change mitigation.
