Bodossaki Foundation came into being in 1972 and works to promote its vision for a society of equal opportunities for all, which enables people to fully realise their potential. Its establishment was the ultimate offering of its founder, Prodromos-Bodossakis Athanassiades – an offering having its roots in the age-long tradition of charity and social solidarity of Anatolian and Diaspora Greeks.
Guided by transparency, accountability and credibility, the Foundation organises activities, based on four strategic priority themes: promoting education, improving healthcare, protecting the environment and empowering civil society.
The Foundation has intimate knowledge of the non-profit public benefit sector in Greece. From its establishment to this day, it has allocated more than €450 million to furthering its causes, focusing on reducing disparities in opportunities, educating young people and supporting socially vulnerable groups of the population. With a view to further strengthening its impact on society, in the last few years, the Bodossaki Foundation has developed and is pursuing a dynamic fundraising policy and is also active in the management of third-party programmes.
Other major initiatives of the Foundation in promoting education include, in addition to scholarships, its scientific awards and the website blod.gr (Bodossaki Lectures on Demand), the only site in Greece to focus on the exclusive promotion of lectures and intellectual content, while in strengthening civil society Social Dynamo plays an important role, providing education, professional support and networking services to civil society groups and organisations.
