BNP Paribas Foundation


The BNP Paribas Foundation, one of the rare corporate philanthropy institutions to actively support jazz musicians, is proud to once again be a sponsor of the Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris. The 2016 edition of the festival runs from May 19-31.
The Festival and the Foundation share a spirit that makes this event truly special, offering a chance for a broad public to discover young musicians as well as recognized names in jazz at concerts in often unexpected venues.
The BNP Paribas Foundation has been providing support for jazz musicians for 21 years, helping them flourish with funding for recordings, promoting their work and sponsoring concert tours. The Foundation is equally committed to helping them gain exposure to a broader audience through joint initiatives with retail banking networks in France and other countries.
