Supporting local and regional citizen initiatives, with a focus on rural areas, and facilitating local philanthropy.
From a region to a town or city, to a village or a neighbourhood, many are the citizens who work to improve our lives together. And numerous are the philanthropists who devote time and/or money to the places in which they grew up or live. The King Baudouin Foundation encourages this citizen engagement and facilitates both individual and collective philanthropic initiatives that support a region or a particular geographic area.
- we support local and regional citizen initiatives that build social cohesion, paying particular attention to rural areas
- we manage and develop funds that mobilise the socio-economic stakeholders of their region with a view to developing the region
- and we make the skills and networks of the KBF available to local philanthropic initiatives.
