Our foundations

As a good corporate citizen, RTL supports worthy causes and organisations through its own foundations. This support focuses on three main areas that reflect the Group’s role as a major family-friendly media company: creative freedom and media freedom, help for children in need, and education. It is part of the Group’s effort to maintain good relationships with local non-governmental organisations, schools, and other stakeholders and to foster local engagement with charities. Our foundations and activities are often directly involved in the charities’ operations.

Fondation M6

Since 2010, Fondation M6 has supported prisoners as they re-join their communities and rebuild their lives. Its work centres on three areas: helping people get back to work, addressing illiteracy and access to education, and re-socialisation through cultural activities.

Fondation M6 assumes its social responsibility by focusing on the general public – the channel’s traditional public – and with the prison population through audiovisual support initiatives offered to prisoners, as well as rehabilitation projects introduced by the French Justice Department.
