Since its inception in 1999, the Paul & Alexandra Canellopoulos Foundation aims to:
- Showcase Greek art from antiquity to this day, with the emphasis on Ancient Greek, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine art;
- Disseminate the Greek culture;
- Promote education and provide opportunities for spreading the Greek spirit and ideas;
- Undertake actions supported by benevolent institutions which cater to the underprivileged.
The actions of the foundation focus on the fields of culture, education and social contribution, the criteria being the importance of each venture, the benefits from the completion of the project and the urgency of the request.
