PwC France and Francophone Africa Corporate Foundation

The PwC France and Francophone Africa Corporate Foundation for Culture and Solidarity was created in June 2007. By participating in its creation, its founding members wanted to mark the desire of the entire French auditing and consulting PwC network to support major national cultural events. They also wished to stress the commitment of PwC France to the social and cultural life of our nation to its 6,400 team members and the many firms they serve. Indeed, as well as this work around cultural activities, the Fondation PwC also supports a number of major social projects, either with the direct financing of charitable projects undertaken by team members, or via partnerships with charities and NGOs.

This year, the Fondation PwC France et Afrique francophone —a founding sponsor of the Mucem— is the principal sponsor the “Ai WeiWei, Fan-Tan
exhibition, organized by this museum of European and Mediterranean civilisations. By providing financial support to the production of this exhibition and in compliance with the law dated 1 August 2003 on corporate sponsorships, the members of the Fondation and in particular its president Bernard Gainnier, are proud to be able to contribute to the commitment of French firms towards the artistic and cultural life of our country.
