What we do
The International Foundation for Greece has been founded in London by George and Aspasia Leventis, with the aim of developing an international network of support for groups of people facing serious problems during this difficult period of the economic crisis that our country is enduring.
Our foundation is initially aiming to buy medical equipment, acquire ambulances and other high speed vehicles and to provide heating for schools and charitable organizations throughout Greece. It is also developing a means for whoever wants to contribute, so that help can reach its target quickly and effectively.
At the foundations’ side are people from the arts, letters and financial world who internationally promoted their work and whose actions remind the world that Greece was and is the cradle of civilisation and the benchmark of every modern democratic society.
The Foundation’ s awards, “IFG AWARDS”, were created during these difficult times that our country is facing to honour Greeks who live beyond the Greek borders, who not only have not forgotten their Greek roots, but who also showcase the Greek ideal within their work.
They will be awarded every three years during a special event at the Acropolis Museum, which will be organised by the Foundation in the presence of political leaders, distinguished good will ambassadors, and the Greek and international media. They will honour personalities and foundations which have been distinguished for their services in the following fields:
- ARTS AND LETTERS
- FILM AND THEATRE
