Our FoundationMission & Governance

Established by the Group’s three Divisions, the Airbus Foundation drives the Company’s worldwide charitable actions, devoting our resources to effective partnerships with volunteer associations and international aid organisations.

Our aim: partnering for a better world

The Airbus Foundation focuses on supporting the humanitarian community as well as educating and inspiring young people through the world of aerospace.

Our goal is to support the international aid organisations in regions where the company operates and beyond, as well as to inspire and encourage youth development through contact with the aerospace industry.
