The Foundation both designs and manages its own programmes and provides grants to non-profit organisations, across a wide range of areas including education, arts and culture, science, health, social welfare and community development.

An engaged philanthropy approach guides the Foundation’s activities, whereby all work is done in close collaboration with civil society partners and key players within the relevant issue areas, in order to maximise social impact.

The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation is a member of the European Venture Philanthropy Association and the European Foundation Centre.
