Heritage & Values
The Fondation LACOSTE continues Rene Lacoste’s commitment. He strongly believed in the values of sport as a lever of developing better lives for youth at risk.
The Foundation assists young people to grow and succeed by cultivating respect toward others, team spirit, motivation and self-improvement.
GIVING A CHANCE TO YOUNG PEOPLE
Rene Lacoste always strove to help young people around him, especially on the Basque Coast, where he lived for the last 20 years of his life.
René Lacoste, creator of the LACOSTE brand, always shared his passion for sports.
His story is that of a tennis legend whose inventions have changed the face of sport and contributed to a revolution in the fashion industry.
In 2006, the René Lacoste Foundation, which later became the Fondation LACOSTE, embodies this commitment to develop better lives for youth through sport.
Armed with confidence, tenacity, perseverance, and rigor, every young person can become a success in the game of life
