Working with the same passion, but in unprecedented times.
17 March 2020

Since our founding, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s fundamental mission has been to promote the common good. We are proud that together with our grantee partners—our friends and collaborators—we have contributed to improving the lives of those in need.

In these unprecedented times, when the most vulnerable among us face even greater risks, continuing to support this work remains our utmost priority.

In consultation with SNF’s expert medical advisors and advice from health authorities that practicing social distancing is the most effective way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented a policy of remote operations for our offices in Athens, New York, and Monaco for as long as necessary.

Our goal, especially in this uncharted territory, is to keep working with the same passion in support of current and prospective grantees every day. We will inevitably encounter difficulties and delays, but safety, health, and above all the common good are more important than any of the daily challenges we will work to overcome.

Now more than ever, we are committed to being a part of the solution and working together to have a positive impact on society.

Our best wishes to you and yours. Stay healthy and safe.
