8 Areas of Funds & Philanthropic Projects
The Beautiful Foundation is operating funds in 8 areas so that anyone can add 1% of warmth to an area that they wish to. This is to organically change many different social problems existing throughout these areas rather than resolving a specific agenda or an issue. The projects in the 8 areas expand fundamental rights and create change to blind spots of rights.
For falling asleep in a safe place and getting treated when sick to become the norm, we will see first, move ahead, and act together. By supporting the citizens and public interest groups that consolidate one another's rights, we are growing the impacts of change and enriching the soil of the research culture in the nonprofit sector to strengthen the citizens through sound philanthropy.
Upon the foundation of small change created together, anyone can come out into the world without barriers. And all those who are the evidence of change in turn become the seeds of change. The Beautiful Foundation will disperse the reverberations of change through such a virtuous cycle.
We help to ensure that physical and mental limitations don't violate the dignity of individuals. We join the effort to find ways for the improvement of policies to change society for the people concerned.

The story is of our ordinary neighbors who found a heartening solution for the society they belong to.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
The development of corporate social responsibility (CSR) begins with partnerships with nonprofit public interest groups that are close to the community. The Beautiful Foundation embraces with openness the different 'needs' of corporations as a strategic partner in corporate philanthropy and seeks corporate partnerships that can be a complementary relationship fulfilling to both sides. Together with our corporate citizens, we want to share and be concerned about the big and small stories for change in our society.
