The IKEA Foundation is a Dutch charitable foundation, founded in 1982 and it addresses four fundamentals in children’s lives. During 2010 the IKEA Foundation donated 45 million Euros. 100 million children will benefit from current programme commitments by 2015.
The IKEA Foundation’s strategy is to work with strong strategic partners to achieve large scale results by addressing four fundamentals in children’s lives; a place to call home, a healthy start in life, a quality education and a sustainable family income.
To make a serious positive impact on a child’s life takes a long-term commitment to combat poverty and childhood disease, as well as provide better access to quality education. That requires a comprehensive approach and the programmes that the IKEA Foundation supports encompass the full circle of a child’s fundamental needs.
All the programmes that are supported by the IKEA Foundation are based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child and aim to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals.
The IKEA foundation works with top experts and develops innovative approaches by partnering with well-established and well-regarded NGOs and IGOs, who are able to navigate and influence government policy and help achieve the critical mass it takes to make a major impact.
