IN SHORT
The foundation is a collective financial tool for emancipation, to support activists, alternative-building and struggles of individuals and collectives, working on changing our system.

WHY?
We can’t afford to wait for other people to act for us: we are on the front row. We must act at all levels to build societies that put the well-living of people and planet at the heart of their concerns and that reject any kind of violence, exploitation or domination.


HOW?
=>with Grant scholarships to collectives or individuals
=>By Lending interest-free money to projects
=> By making movable and immovable property available for collective projects.
=> With specific funds to finance a targeted action or a specific project

This is financial support to assist victims of legal repression in the context of activist involvement or police violence.

SPECIFIC FUNDS

Collectives can apply for the creation of a specific fund to self-finance their activities or to finance a specific topic (in line with the mission and values of the Foundation).

How we work

HORIZONTALITY and SELF-MANAGEMENT
Democractic and participative ways of working are important to us. Therefore our way of working is horizontal.The projects that are financed are chosen by a randomly drawn comittee and the different tasks are distributed between the working groups of the foundation.

POOLING and FINANCIAL AUTONOMY

In order to finance the foundation, we count on our collective ability to pool a percentage of our income (for example 1%), but also on donations or bequests in cash or in kind

Because, as Marius used tp say:

« Le droit de vivre dignement ne se mendie pas, il se prend »

« La lutte ne disparaîtra que lorsque les Hommes mettront en commun leurs

joies et leurs peines, leurs travaux et leurs richesses, que lorsque tout
appartiendra à tous. »

Marius Jacob, 1905. Anarchist thief.,
