25% Performance fees given to foundations
Education and health are fundamental children’s rights, essential for the exercise of all other human rights. CIAM donates 25% of annual performance fees to foundations, charities and organizations committed to these causes. The beneficiaries are selected by CIAM Opportunities' Independent Board and donations are channeled directly from the fund performance fees to the selected receivers.
Our general philosophy is to help a limited number of beneficiaries, where funds are dedicated to specific projects focused on providing and improving access to health and education for children. So far, we have funded 18 different organizations and the funds were deployed almost equally between Europe and the rest of the world.
As a way of example, in 2018 we supported the pediatric oncology research pioneer Gustave Roussy in its campaign “To cure childhood cancer in the 21st century”.
