The Bodossaki Foundation was established in 1972 and is one of the most respected privately owned public-benefit organizations in Greece. It is the result of a long, strenuous and consistent effort of its founder, Prodromos Bodossakis – Athanasiadis to support the state, the society and his fellow people, as a legacy of the tradition he himself carried, together with many other Greek benefactors and representatives of the Greek diaspora.
The Bodossaki Foundation is currently active in four main strategic pillars: education, health, protection of the environment and the empowerment of civil society in Greece.
The Bodossaki Foundation has a deep knowledge of the non-profit sector in Greece and since its inception it has managed more than €400 million that have been disbursed placing a great emphasis on decreasing inequality of opportunity, on contributing to the education of young people, on improving medical and research infrastructure and on promoting environmental protection.
Our vision is to enable human and social potential for a better life.
We operate under the principles of transparency, innovation, accountability and credibility.
By 2020 we aim to significantly increase our social impact, by sharpening our focus on education and civil society, by being innovative and open in our approach and by fostering giving and new partnerships.
Being established as a foundation of trust, transparency and accountability, the Bodossaki Foundation is currently active in seeking and administering funds for the benefit of the society as a whole, as well as for the benefit of specific target groups in the society that are particularly affected by the crisis. The Foundation’s current strategy is to actively seek new funds in order to continue the philanthropic tradition of its founder, as well as his lasting legacy.
