KONE Centennial Foundation (KCF, KONE Oyj:n 100-vuotissäätiö sr)

KCF was founded in 2010 by KONE Corporation in celebration of its 100th anniversary. The Foundation continues to work in close cooperation with KONE Corporation, but it is independent from the company both juridically and operatively.

KCF projects are located only in countries where they are most needed and where local KONE units can contribute practical support. The Foundation welcomes KONE employees who wish to volunteer their time and skills to its projects.

KCF neither solicits grant proposals nor encourages unsolicited submissions.
The Foundation may accept gifts and bequests from corporations and individuals.

 
 
 

OUR WORK

 
KCF Projects Map
Strong local partners ensure that our resources are allocated efficiently while respecting local culture and priorities.

KONE Centennial Foundation (“KCF” or “the Foundation”) gives priority to projects serving the neediest children and youth. From the initial planning period through implementation of a project, it is important for KCF to cooperate closely with strong local partners. By working in this way, the Foundation ensures that its resources are allocated efficiently while respecting local culture and priorities.

KCF has a long-term commitment to projects it supports. KCF focuses on innovative services that can be replicated and have the potential to become self-sustainable. KCF also devotes effort to attracting support from other public and private sources in order to improve the sustainability and performance of its projects.
