The Louis-Jeantet Foundation was set up in Geneva in 1982 according to the wish of the Geneva-resident French businessman Louis Jeantet, having been endowed with his fortune upon his death from cancer in 1981. The Foundation commenced activities in 1983.

It funds the Louis-Jeantet Prize, and a number of professorships at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva.
