31 JANUARY 2019 / SNF Representatives Attend Celebratory Event Hosted by French Ambassador to Greece

On Wednesday, January 30th, representatives of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) attended a celebratory event hosted by the Ambassador of France, Christophe Chantepy. SNF Board of Directors member Giorgos Agouridis and Ambassador Vassilis Kaskarelis, Advisor to the SNF Board of Directors, attended the event on behalf of the SNF.

As part of its international grantmaking activities, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation has supported a range of nonprofit organizations operating in France, across the Foundation’s fields of work in social welfare, health, culture and education.

This support has included grants to the Centre Antoine Lacassagne for the acquisition of a 4D scanner for a therapy facility, to the Enfance et Partage Association in Paris for a free phone helpline for new parents, to the French Association Saint Vincent to provide shelter for women who are victims of violence, and to ZUPdeCo in Paris for educational support for children in underprivileged areas.

The SNF has also supported the French Embassy in Athens for the implementation of the French-Greek innovation network forum, “Mazinnov,” which brings together innovators from both the public and the private sector in order to forge partnerships and nurture innovative ideas about the future of Greece.
