The Fund

The A & A Ulmann Fund was created in 2019 to support projects aimed to help women and children in need.  The projects supported through this structure reflect the values that have guided the Founders, Agnès et André Ulmann throughout their medical careers. 


The A&A Ulmann Fund Mission

The mission of the Fund is to support sectors that matter deeply to the Founders: child protection, women’s rights advocacy, access to education, to justice, to healthcare, to economic development. The A&A Ulmann Fund’s ambition is to support a wide range of charitable initiatives in vulnerable populations with an underlying guideline: to Accompany and to Autonomize.
