Joie de Vivre, a Bagatelle Foundation

To our extended Bagatelle family,

A few weeks into the COVID-19 virus, we have closed 100% of our venues globally and most of our staff is currently unemployed and facing a very uncertain future. As a company, we are trying to not only survive to be there at the end of these challenging times, but we also wish to look after our team as best as possible.

Our current aim is to create a Bagatelle “Joie de Vivre” relief fund solely aimed at helping our global team members and their families who are most in need. In order to do so, we wish to call on your generosity in a time where you are,  we are sure, all facing hardship and solicitation. We will also call on our corporate partners to match donations in a collective effort to overcome this and show gratitude to our hard working, always smiling Bagatelle team.

100% of any money raised via this platform will be directed to this emergency relief fund and we will share with you on a regular basis all the good this has done as well as share our thanks within our community.

On behalf of our team, we thank you.

We will be waiting for you on the other side of the COVID-19 tunnel, to celebrate life and finally share all the hugs we have been deprived of while confined.

In the meantime, stay home, stay healthy and remember that we have created Bagatelle Playlists on Spotify to keep you company while contained!


*The foundation is still in the 501(c)(3) approval process for tax-exempt status.  All donations will be tax-deductible, pending IRS application approval.  Although this foundation can not currently make a warranty of tax deductibility until the application is approved, we do expect the IRS to approve the application.  The foundation will make its IRS determination letter available to all donors once approved.
