Funding & support

We believe that tradicional business goals can be reached through socially and environmentally responsible practices.
Our vision

“To create a better everyday life for the many people”, this is the IKEA vision. Our business idea is “to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them”.

Our social initiative

In partnership with Save the Children and UNICEF, we support social activities on a global level.

By funding social programs for children and the environment, we contribute to a better everyday life for the many people.

Why children?

Children are our future. We want to make their world a safer and better place to grow and develop.

Why the environment?

Our planet is our home. Rational use of natural resources helps us save the environment.

Why a better life?

By sharing our know-how and donating products, we fullfil our vision of creating a better everyday life for the many people.

We want all programs we fund to match well with the IKEA vision, so we choose our partners by defined criteria:
  • is the project focused on local problems inside the country?
  • are goals of the project related to improving children living and learning conditions?
  • is the project focused on helping children and youth suffering from serious illnesses?
  • does the project involve local communities and introduce IKEA as a home furnishing specialist?
  • is the project related to the environmental issues?
  • is the project related to Save the Children or UNICEF activities?
IKEA does not support:
  • financially;
  • for-profit organisations;
  • charitable activities in-store or around, unless they are focused on children (weekends only);
  • public relations activities or advetising;
  • individual requests (a single person support);
  • animal welfare organisations;
