La Fondation Roi Baudouin aims to contribute to a better society.
La Fondation is, in Belgium and in Europe, a voice of change and innovation in the public interest and with a view to social cohesion. It seeks to maximise its impact by strengthening the skills of organisations and people. It encourages an efficient philanthropy in individuals and businesses.
Its main values are integrity and transparency, pluralism and independence, respect of diversity and the promotion of solidarity.
Its areas of action at the moment are poverty and social justice, philanthropy, health, social engagement, developing talents, democracy, European integration, heritage and cooperating with development.
La Fondation Roi Baudouin is a foundation of public usage. It was created in 1976, to mark 25 years of reign for King Baudouin.
As a Fondation, we unite reseachers and key players in certain fields so that they can exchange their experiences and visions. We also ask research centres to analyse the issues of today, to collect and analyse data and figures, and to explore potential avenues. We compile all of this information in reports, and publish them freely. In this way, we tackle a vast range of themes. Our independence and our pluralism guarantee an objective point of view.
