Steps of the process:

- Receipt of the application: the Foundation receives applications exclusively during the three periods for the calls for projects: March, June and November

- Analysis and review of the application: the Foundation's operational team carefully analyses all the applications received and initiates discussions with the preselected project heads

- Compliance check: Using the documents provided as part of the request for funding, each preselected organisation is subject to compliance checks in keeping with the regulatory requirements of the Societe Generale group

- Selection of projects: the preselected applications are presented to the Foundation's decision-making bodies. The selection committees issue recommendations and the Board of Directors votes

- Decision to offer funding: a project is funded if: 1) Compliance checks are validated and 2) it is approved by the Board of Directors
