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 125 years ago in the Tyrolean Alps.

The Swarovski Foundation’s mission is to build on this heritage by supporting charitable initiatives and organizations working in three areas: fostering culture and creativity, promoting human empowerment and preserving the environment.

CULTURE & CREATIVITY
We preserve cultural heritage and foster emerging creative talent by funding educational charities and institutions working across the creative industries.

HUMAN EMPOWERMENT
We promote gender equality and education, working with organizations that educate young people and address the challenges facing women around the world.

ENVIRONMENT
We partner with environmental organizations and projects engaged in the conservation, protection and improvement of the natural world.
