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 126 years ago in the Tyrolean Alps. 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 preserve cultural heritage and foster emerging creative talent by funding educational charities and institutions working across the creative industries.

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

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