Our mission

To improve the lives of vulnerable children by enabling their families to create sustainable livelihoods, and fight and cope with climate change.

The IKEA Foundation has granted €1.8 billion for people and the planet so far.

Our focus


We’re committed to helping families living in poverty and people who have been forced to flee their homes to build sustainable livelihoods. We see great opportunities in regenerative agriculture, green enterprise and the productive use of renewable energy.


We’re committed to bold climate action to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to helping vulnerable communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.
