The Founders' FIRST BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF

The King Faisal Foundation

 

We were fortunate enough to grow up in the shadow of a man whose greatness was acknowledged not only in the heart of his family but in the eyes of a nation. Our father's love, discipline, and sense of responsibility instilled in us a desire, and perhaps even a need, to ensure that the spirit of King Faisal's altruistic ambitions would live on after his untimely death in 1975.

After reflecting on who our father had been, what he had represented, and what he had set out to achieve, we felt that international philanthropy was a logical response. The formation of King Faisal Foundation was the means chosen to commemorate this exceptional man in a way that befitted the example of his life. The task at first seemed daunting. How could we presume to fulfill the dreams of a giant? Our humanitarian father was concerned for the welfare of peoples everywhere, particularly the disadvantaged. He thought globally at a time when many people focused on national issues. By inaugurating long-range economic and social welfare programs he provided much financial and moral support to developing nations worldwide.

King Faisal Foundation tries to give substance to his vision of making the world a better place. Through an extensive program of activities, we hope to reach a diversity of people and care for some of their more pressing needs. We take just one step at a time but are rewarded by the knowledge that we have embarked on a great journey.

The generosity of private contributions coupled with a wise investment strategy increase our ability to help more people in need. This is the truest mark of our success and the one which gives all of us the most gratification.
