FREDERIQUE CONSTANT FOUNDATION
GLOBAL CHARITY BRAND AMBASSADOR
The Frederique Constant Foundation is currently being incorporated in Geneve, Switzerland and is an initiative of the Co-Founders of Frederique Constant. While our partnership with the World Heart Federation will continue in 2015, we plan to step-up our charitable activities significantly in the coming years. We will group all our charitable donations (http://www.frederiqueconstant.com/charity/) into the new foundation and use funds to support more projects directly. More.
Frederique Constant Foundation
Peter Stas (born 1963) is a Dutch entrepreneur and author. In 1988, after he completed his studies in Business Economics at the Erasmus University and worked as Product-Marketing Manager for Royal Philips Electronics, he founded, with his wife Aletta Stas-Bax, the watch company Frédérique Constant. The manufacture’s initial strategy was to focus its energy on classical luxury watches at an affordable price. The Accessible Luxury positioning was the basis of strong growth during the financial crisis when consumers came back more to classical values and accessible prices.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US
“Once again, thank you for your generous donation and support of our efforts.”
We do believe the message of preventable actions from heart disease will be reached further to the public, with the aid of extended impact of Frédérique Constant and Ms. ShuQi. We hope this event could raise the awareness on the cardiovascular disease and start off the road to healthy hearts by daily good habit.”
“I’d like to thank Frédérique Constant for their generosity and support. The money raised from this event will help fund essential research which could create a better future for so many – from babies born with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease.”
Having the opportunity to utilize this watch was a great experience, it allowed us to have a campaign which targeted high networth individuals to our auction, it provided a level of sophistication that we could not have obtained without a real upfront cost. So I thank you and Frédérique Constant for not only supporting the cause be allowing us to gain access to individuals we would not normally relate to all for the good of the children of Barbados with CVD.”
It is an honour and a privilege to partner with Frédérique Constant and their ambassador Ines Sastre on the wonderful “Hearts of Children” campaign. Through the support of Frédérique Constant we have been able to support lifesaving children’s heart health programmes across the globe, from rheumatic heart disease prevention and awareness programmes in Pakistan to financing a camp for children with heart conditions in Barbados, from the “Dress Red” campaign in South Africa to research support in Switzerland in the field of congenital heart disease for children. Thanks to the leadership of the Stas family and the visibility of Ms. Sastre, we are able to significantly raise awareness and grow programmes focusing on children’s heart health across the globe.”
