Arcadia Philanthropic Trust – UK

The Arcadia Philanthropic Trust was born in 2002 and is a family trust with active, living donors that supports work to preserve endangered cultural heritage, protect endangered ecosystems, and promote access to knowledge.

The aim of the organisation is to defend the complexity of human culture and the natural world, so that coming generations can build a vibrant, resilient and green future. Arcadia makes grants proactively and takes an evidence-based approach to its work.

Laudes Foundation – Switzerland

The Laudes Foundation is an independent foundation launched in 2020 and part of the Brenninkmeijer family enterprise.

Although independent from the COFRA businesses and the family’s other private philanthropic activities, the Laudes Foundation learns from its past and present experiences. In particular, the foundation will advance the industry-changing work of the C&A Foundation, and build on the experience of its flagship initiative, Fashion for Good.

Laudes’ mission is to transform the global economic system and the way it defines value.
