The “International Foundation for Greece” has been founded in London by George and Aspasia Leventis with the aim of developing an international network of support for groups of people enduring serious problems during this difficult period of economic crisis in Greece.

The foundation acts as a vehicle for those wanting to offer their support and ensures ‘help’ reaches the targeted group quickly and effectively.

The Foundation’s awards, “IFG AWARDS’, honour contemporary Greeks live beyond Greek borders, who not only have not forgotten their Greek roots, but who also showcase and bring to life the Greek ideal within their work and at the same time with their actions remind the world that was and the cradle of western civilisation.
