PROFILE: Established in 2007, the Alstom Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the French multinational transportation corporation, Alstom.

Although Alstom does not specifically dedicate an animal and wildlife program, its grantmaking reveals an interest. For example, a past grantee in this space includes the Mamoni Wildlife Conservation Centre, which received funding to create a conservation center in Panama, this work included wildlife conservation training for more than 700 employees.

The Alstom Foundation accepts unsolicited grant applications and proposals. For grant consideration, an Alstom employee must typically submit applications and proposals; however, if grantseekers do not know anyone at Alstom to champion their projects, they are encouraged to contact the Alstom Foundation Secretariat, who will try to find an employee who can play the role of an employee sponsor.
