Our corporate Foundation for Families

Helping families to reconnect: this is the mission of the Group’s Foundation

Discover our actions

The Foundation for Families supports about ten associations per year to accompany singular families.

Helping families reconnect

Every year, 8 million customers stay with their families in the Pierre & Vacances-Center Parcs Group’s residences. The family and the quality of the bonds that are created within it are the first building blocks of a fulfilled future, especially for children. However, some families find it more difficult than others to establish these quality ties. It is to these families that the Foundation dedicates its action by supporting associations across Europe.

With each of its partner associations, the Foundation combines 3 forms of sponsorship: financial sponsorship, sponsorship of skills and sponsorship in kind.

Our 3 sponsorship programs

Families in reconstruction

When an episode of violence disrupts the daily life of a household (intra-family violence, sexual abuse, flight from a country at war, great economic or social fragility)

Families and disability / illness

Because disability and/or illness increases a family’s mental burden (monitoring treatment, administrative procedures, purchasing adapted equipment, etc.)

Families facing discrimination

For a better representation of the specificities of blended, single-parent and LGBTQIA+ families in our society.

Anaïs Schumm,
Pierre & Vacances E-commerce Manager,
volunteer and leader of the “Digital Coaching” project with the LEA association

“Being involved in a solidarity mission is very important to me: it is a way of giving even more meaning to my work by helping, in my own way, the families of the LEA association.”

Laurence Doumet,
Director of Zone Pierre & Vacances,
volunteers to welcome families from the LEA association to the Cannes Verrerie site

“This commitment has allowed me to feel useful and not only productive, being involved in my company also means sharing common values and contributing to a better world.”

Sandrine Boucher,
Events Coordinator – Villages Nature Paris,
volunteered to welcome families “Magie à l’hôpital”

Sandra, mother of Jules,
beneficiary of the association “Magie à l’hôpital”

“THANK YOU to Center Parcs for committing to Magic in the Hospital, for opening your doors to families and also your heart! We, the parents, are touched to see that we are supported and that we are not alone in our fight against the disease.”
