A General Secretary: Mr Daniel Blanloeil,
A Treasurer: Mr. Jacques Leca.
The board appoints a General Manager who ensures the operational management. On a daily basis, these are :

Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque is a member of the Charter Committee, a body that accredits and monitors associations and foundations that appeal to the generosity of the public. As such, it respects the rules of the Charter on Giving in Trust, particularly with regard to financial transparency with donors.
Very detailed cost accounting allows us to monitor and control our expenses. Financial lines are defined pole by pole, and our administrative and financial department, supported by a board of independent experts, has developed systematic and binding budget management tools.
Each action is developed with a result objective and the majority of our purchases, which are also checked by the division directors, are subject to a permanent search for objectives:
- Maximum free search,
- Purchase at the best price,
- Loyalty to our suppliers,
- Respect for our values
Audited and validated by our Board of Directors, our provisional annual budget is based on a precise schedule and objectives as well as fundraising forecasts. Published each year in the Official Journal, all the information in this document is taken from the annual accounts and is available here:
Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque pays particular attention to its environmental impact. It is in this context that the Association has chosen " A Tree For You "for a project with a strong local impact in Madagascar, a country where the Association has been working regularly with 206 Malagasy children in care since 1997. Supported by Air France and Aviations sans Frontières, Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque has chosen to finance the Kolorano project: planting 55,000 trees, 25,000 of which will ultimately secure the water and food supply for the producers, thus enabling the inhabitants of the town of Ambalavao and the surrounding farming families to practice agriculture downstream and upstream from the springs. A sustainable project with an impact on the local population.
Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque finances the project to support the environmental impact of air transport of children coming for treatment in France accompanied by their Aviation Sans Frontières couriers, medical missions in the various countries where the Association operates, as well as the impact of ground transport for fund-raising events.
It is a virtuous circle between the partners ofMécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque: Air France, Air France humanitaire, Aviations sans Frontières and the association A Tree for You.
France Générosités, of which Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque is a member, was created on the initiative of associations and foundations appealing to the generosity of the public; its mission is to defend, promote and develop generosity in France. It thus represents the sector within the public authority to defend the interests of its members and foster a climate and context favorable to generosity.
