Only The Brave Foundation

The Only The Brave Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded by Renzo Rosso and supported by his group OTB (the parent company of Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Viktor&Rolf, Staff International and Brave Kid).

Born in 2008 with the mission to fight social inequality and to contribute to the sustainable development of less advantaged areas and people throughout the world, the Only The Brave Foundation has so far supported over 170 innovative projects providing concrete solutions to the life of more than 180,000 people.

It invests 10% of its funds in Italy and the remaining 90% primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa. The projects supported are selected following very simple criteria: they have to be innovative, sustainable, and bring about direct and concrete social impact.
