CIS Corporate Foundation

The CIS Corporate Foundation, created in February 2008 at the instigation of Régis ARNOUX, Chairman and Founder of the CIS Group, supports young adults with projects but limited material resources, to show them that the business world is interested in their career.

The CIS Foundation supports its grant holders for an average of 4 years until their project is completed.

Since its creation, it has helped nearly 150 young adults, including 25 in 2022, who now hold positions in various sectors, notably in the health sector, in banking, in consulting firms or in the video game industry.

This year, two new members have joined the CIS Foundation.

"The CIS Corporate Foundation wants to support the youth of its region and enable those who, having a project but limited in their material means, want to believe in the future.
