The foundation's origins

The DECATHLON Foundation has been our teammates' project since 2005. A project they are still proudly supporting. Originally, a survey in 2004 asked their opinion about the creation of a foundation. There was unanimous enthusiasm! The DECATHLON foundation sees the light of day.

Its main mission is evident: support the most vulnerable and make sport a vehicle for social integration, as well as a way of remaining fit and healthy. All while taking real action all over the world.

What is the decathlon foundation's mission ? 

With the DECATHLON Foundation, our teammates get involved to make things happen. They support loud and clear our main mission: “To Sustainably make the pleasure and benefits of sport accessible to the many”. Sports everywhere and for everyone !

The role of our Foundation is also to accompany teammates that are already committed to socially responsible projects. And spark new individual or collective initiatives to have a positive impact on our local ecosystem, on our planet and our relation with others.

Above all, human beings are the heart of our mission. Those we support through our projects are our neighbours. Just like us, they love sport. It's up to us to promote sharing. And see to it that sport is a way for everyone to gain confidence, get into better physical shape and boost morale.

Here are a few examples :
