Questel funds and/or supports employee-sponsored social projects along the following guidelines

For your project to be funded, it must respect the 3 main features below:

  • Projects must be recurring, so we can add year-over-year value to a charitable cause;
  • Project could be located in any countries to help us spread the word around the world;
  • Projects for the benefit of children or dedicated to the sustainable development.

While these projects are local in nature, we intend to spread our donations evenly throughout the world. We finance each project recurrently up to 5,000 euros. We would like that our donations will be ongoing and sustainable in order to have a positive impact over the years. With this approach over time our investments will make a difference.

Questel’s support can also be in other forms such as giving time and participating in causes on a voluntary basis, providing equipment, etc.
