The King Baudouin Foundation is an independent charitable institution.
It was founded in 1976 thanks to donations by the population to their Sovereign on the 25th anniversary of the accession to the throne of King Baudouin.
The Foundation takes all kinds of initiatives aimed at improving the living conditions of the population, from the economic, social and cultural and well as the scientific viewpoint.
Through cooperation with public bodies, associations, companies and citizens, the Foundation has been able to develop into an institution that enjoys widespread recognition and which fulfils an important role in our country.
Its value-added lies in its multiplier effect, its function as a forum and its enthusiastic exploration of the future.
Through the hundreds of projects that it draws up and supports, in the country and abroad, the King Baudouin Foundation aims to take up challenges and social problems.
With this in mind, it stimulates solidarity and generosity, and plays a role as a catalyst in the creation of lasting change.
