Philanthropy
Evolem, a philanthropic entrepreneur
The vision of entrepreneur Bruno Rousset is founded on societal commitment, so Evolem has been taking action in the public interest domain for many years. We take a philanthropic entrepreneurial approach which can be seen through the creation, guidance and support offered to non-profit, high-impact initiatives. We focus on a limited number of projects in order to foster high-quality partnerships which are conducive to their development. Evolem staff members devote their skills (strategy, finance, communications, etc.) and time to the benefit of the projects supported in order to uphold our community values.

Specific areas of involvement

FROM STARTING TO DEVELOPING A PROJECT, FROM EXPERIMENTING TO EXPANDING A NEW PROGRAMME, WE STEP IN AT VARIOUS KEY MOMENTS TO SUPPORT SOCIAL INNOVATION OPERATORS.
Our philanthropic work focuses on 3 areas and is supported by dedicated endowment funds.
  • Professional integration of young people
    (EVOLEM Citoyen endowment fund)
  • Environment and ecological transition
    (Domorrow endowment fund)
  • Sheltering people in extreme poverty
    (through our support to ‘LEntreprise des Possibles’)

These 3 axes apply to the new commitments that will be decided from 2022 onwards.

ACTING ON BEHALF OF FUTURE GENERATIONS
Domorrow is a philanthropic endowment fund created in 2020 by the ROUSSET family and the Evolem family office, under the leadership of Bruno ROUSSET.

The mission of the Domorrow endowment fund is to support public interest projects in the field of the environment and ecological and solidarity transition, focusing on three priority areas: research and innovation; education and awareness raising; the circular economy and social integration.
