The King Baudouin Foundation (KBF) is an independent, pluralistic foundation working in Belgium and at the European and international level. It seeks to change society for the better and invests in inspiring projects and individuals. To support its international goal, the KBF set up a US public charity and an office in New York City.
In 2015, the King Baudouin Foundation and the Funds it administers provided €34.8 million in support to 264 individuals and 1,813 organizations. Projects were funded in the areas of poverty, health, development, civic engagement and heritage, among others. KBF also organises debates on important social issues, shares research results through free publications, enters into partnerships, and encourages philanthropy, working 'through' rather than 'for' the King Baudouin Foundation.
Under the Honorary Presidency of Queen Mathilde.
The King Baudouin Foundation Advisory Council and the Board of Governors determine the key areas of work. The board of governors is chaired by Thomas Leysen.
