The Bodossaki Foundation was established in 1972 by Prodromos – Bodossakis Athanassiades, who decided to donate his entire fortune in order to promote the provision of health care, equality of opportunity, education, scientific progress and environmental protection. The Foundation is the culminating point of its founder’s brilliant course in life and remains the carrying vessel of the values and ideas that Bodossakis faithfully served throughout his life.

The Foundation has a deep knowledge of social needs in Greece and has administered so far more than €450m supporting its causes.

The Bodossaki Foundation also supports NGOs working with socially vulnerable groups and has lately set the strengthening of civil society as one of its primary objectives. Since 2013 it administers the regranting facilities of the EEA Grants for civil society in Greece.
