The Jacques Martel Foundation’s missions

Promote access to healthy and sustainable food



As actors in the food chain, the members of the foundation are committed to working for a sustainable, reasoned, and constructive development of our food resources. Also, by getting involved in the support of a responsible agriculture that respects our environment and by raising the awareness of the young generation to this challenge, the foundation expects to bring its contribution and its support to this fundamental issue for our future society.

Protection of our marine resources


For the foundation, the protection of our marine resources was an obvious choice. Jacques Martel was able to convey his passion and love for the sea, sailing and all the human and environmental values that necessarily follow from it. The foundation is aware of the fragility of this ecosystem, which was so dear to him and wants, through various actions and financial support, to take part in the preservation of biodiversity and marine species.

Develop the entrepreneurial and responsible culture of young people



Jacques Martel has always had a particular attachment to the professional accomplishment of the younger generation, both for young employees and young athletes as well as for the new committed and responsible generations. Today, the foundation wishes to take over by supporting young talents to undertake and accomplish themselves through their professional projects.

Help children with life threatening illness and their families.


Children are the present and the future of the world. They need to be protected so that they can live, grow, and thrive.
These needs are multiplied for sick children and their families, participating in their struggles and their victories is essential for them and for us.
The Jacques Martel foundation is part of this crucial mission by supporting associations committed to this cause.
