Who we are |

The King Baudouin Foundation (KBF) is an independent, pluralistic foundation. Its mission is clear but also complex: to change society and to improve the living conditions of the population. Based in Brussels, the KBF is a European foundation which is mainly active in Belgium and Europe. In Africa, the Foundation is focusing on Benin, Burundi, the DR Congo and Senegal, but also supports initiatives in many other countries.

Based in New York City, Myriad USA provides donors with a simple and efficient platform to support nonprofit initiatives overseas, anywhere across the globe. Since January 2024, Myriad USA brings together the expertise and networks of the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) and Give2Asia, and builds on their shared history, their shared belief that local knowledge counts, and their shared objective of improving the lives of people around the world.

KBF CANADA is a large international philanthropic network that brings together Canadian donors, philanthropists, and organizations that are ready to change the world. It is a charitable organisation registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

What we do |

We help African civil society organisations and leaders, for the implementation of specific projects or for their general functioning.

We support them mainly through grants, but also through loans and bank guarantees if they run social businesses, as well as through technical support and networking.

In Africa, KBF mainly invests money from private donors. These donors benefit from the services of the Foundation’s Centre for Philanthropy, which over the years has developed a series of philanthropic solutions that can respond to various situations and the specific objectives of each philanthropist.

“Philanthropy is not only for very wealthy people. We can all make an effort for the public good.”

Peter Piot, Honorary President of the King Baudouin Foundation
