The Crédit Coopératif Foundation acts at the forefront and in the wake of the bank that created it, to support the innovations of the Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) at the service of transitions. Because the ecological emergency and social fractures are the major challenges of our time and because the SSE is a pioneer of solutions, the Foundation supports projects that help the SSE to grow and strengthen its influence for a fairer and more united society, in harmony with the planet.

The Fondation Crédit Coopératif has been the main sponsor of the Festival d'Avignon since 2011. This loyal relationship is based on a shared conviction: that popular attendance of the performing arts is an essential driver of citizen emancipation and the collective imagination that the world needs.

Nestled between vineyards, wooded hills and valleys, protected by the famous Dentelles de Montmirail massif which overlooks the village, the Vacqueyras vineyards cover 1,460 hectares.

Since 1998, Vacqueyras has been supporting the Festival d'Avignon as part of its commitment to the attractiveness and cultural influence of its region.
