The major AEON Group companies donate 1% of their pre-tax profits, and the Foundation engages in projects with three main themes: Sound Development of the Next Generation, Promotion of Friendship with Foreign Countries, and Sustainable Development of Regional Communities.
The Foundation cultivates children’s abilities to think about environmental issues while learning about societal rules, via activities such as environment-related study and team presentations of environmental initiative case studies.
Furthermore, we support the building of new schools in countries that lack sufficient educational facilities, through coordination with national governments and NPOs.
The Foundation provides students with opportunities for international cultural and interpersonal exchange, and strengthen the bonds of friendship between Japan and various countries by deepening mutual understanding. In addition, we support the development of internationally-minded citizens through actions such as awarding scholarships to foreign students in Japan.
The Foundation supports the transmission of traditional events and culture firmly rooted in local regions, which needs to be passed down to the next generations, as well as providing support for the revival and reconstruction of regions damaged by large-scale natural disasters. We also work to foster new talent who will shoulder the responsibilities of such activities.
