SNFCC – Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center

One of the world’s leading private philanthropic organizations, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations in the arts and culture, education, health and sports, and social welfare. Since 1996, the SNF has committed more than €2.6 billion through more than 4,300 grants to nonprofit organizations in 124 countries around the world.

The SNF supports organizations and programs worldwide expected to have a significant, lasting positive impact for society at large and exhibit strong leadership and good governance. The Foundation also supports programs that facilitate the formation of public and private partnerships as an effective means for serving public welfare.

The SNFCC is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s largest single donation. Total project cost exceeded 630$ million. The project was delivered by the SNF to the Greek state on 23 February 2017. After delivering the SNFCC to the Greek State, the SNF announced its commitment to continue supporting it for five years with grants summing up to €50 million for the implementation of free public events as well as for its day to day operation; furthermore, it continues funding the organizations residing in its premises: the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera.

In addition to being the visionary, creator, and donor of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is also an invaluable collaborator across multiple activities, as well as an events organizer at the SNFCC premises.

Also, the SNF continued supporting the SNFCC Membership Program during 2017. The Membership Program was inaugurated in June 2016, when 42,000 Members were registered with the subscription fees being covered through an SNF exclusive grant. Finally, through its Recharging the Youth initiative, the SNF offers to young people aged 18-35 paid internship positions at the SNFCC, and at its combined activities with the Greek National Opera and the National Library of Greece.
