Life-changing programmes worldwide
As a family-owned company with a global seafaring heritage that dates back to 1675, we care passionately about the seas and have a real love of the beautiful places and inspiring cultures we take our guests to explore all over the world. This has led us to launch many life-changing initiatives over the years.
The MSC Foundation was founded in 2018 to lead and coordinate these conservation and humanitarian commitments worldwide, developing the longstanding philanthropic partnerships of all the MSC Group companies and launching many new initiatives.
Our Foundation works to restore the critical balance between people and nature, utilising our global reach and unique knowledge of the sea to take immediate action to protect and nurture the blue planet, its peoples and our shared cultural heritage.
We help disaster-struck populations toward recovery and support vulnerable communities around the world to realise their full potential through education, sustainable development, and humanitarian medical programmes.
Our Foundation works to achieve this both independently and together with trusted partners that have a strong innovative vision or track record for effective action. Our principal partners are UNICEF, the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, Marevivo and Mercy Ships.
