OL Fondation : Retour sur le dispositif Ensemble contre le Covid-19
Olympique Lyonnais, through its foundation and its endowment fund, wished to support the actions of those on the ground working in response to the health crisis. During this exceptional period, the Club succeeded in mobilizing its entire community to very quickly deploy significant financial, material and human resources.


From the start of the crisis, several measures were put in place by Olympique Lyonnais in consultation with local institutions, on the medical but also social aspects of combating the pandemic. For this, the Club immediately allocated a total budget of € 300,000, divided between the Fondation des Hospices Civils de Lyon and four Lyon groups that mobilized to work with the most disadvantaged people in the Lyon metropolitan area. The Club's partners, supporters and sympathizers came to strengthen this approach through a crowdfunding campaign, which made it possible to redistribute an additional € 166,000 in a few weeks.

Many partners also showed their sympathy and provided assistance with a wide variety of in-kind donations (supporters' groups, partner companies). The actions of the Club and the generosity of the entire OL community have taken different forms so that everyone can mobilize and support those affected and frontline staff, our #ChampionsAuQuotidien.
