l’art en plus has advised the Fonds de dotation Merci for the celebration of its 10th anniversary in 2020.

The Fonds de dotation Merci was created in 2009 by a family of entrepreneurs, presided over by Marie-France and Bernard Cohen, who founded the French brand Bonpoint. After selling their company in 2007, the couple created this philanthropic project in 2009, inaugurating a completely new concept in France: a boutique, called Merci, that continuously and durably funds and supports a charity through its eponymous endowment fund. In 2013, Marie-France Cohen sold the store and continued the project, accompanied by her three sons, donating the proceeds of the sale to the Fonds de dotation Merci. Since its creation, the fund’s goal is for women, men and children to build a future for themselves; it aims to improve living conditions in the spheres of education, society, health, economics and culture.
