A symbol of the club's commitment to values of respect and solidarity, the OL Foundation has been carrying out social commitments and supporting projects of general interest for over 10 years. 

The Foundation’s activities are based on three commitments:

- Rely on the skills and legitimacy of the community 
- Establish partnerships over time to optimize their social impact
- Mobilize Olympique Lyonnais players and staff to network with the club’s partners in the community and highlight their work

For the 2018-2021 cycle, the OL FOUNDATION has chosen to support three major causes:

- Insertion through sport: Sport dans la Ville
- Education: Ma Chance, Moi Aussi
- Assistance to sick or hospitalized people: The Femme-Mère-Enfant Hospital’s Transition Space and “Sport for sick children” project
