HRH Prince Khalid Al-Faisal
Managing Director, King Faisal Foundation
Chairman, Board of Directors,
King Faisal International Prize Committee
In human terms, three decades are equivalent to a generation, a span of time in which an individual is born and reaches maturity. This reference can be applied to the existence of King Faisal Foundation. In 1976G, noble aspirations inspired by the exemplary life of King Faisal became a reality.
From tentative conception through corporate adolescence to internationally respected maturity, King Faisal Foundation built a sound base on which it steadily has grown. For the past 33 years, Foundation activities have touched countless lives around the world. Our many diverse programs have directly or indirectly brought a rare gift of hope to men, women, and children who might otherwise have few opportunities that could alter the paths of their lives.
This period of development, evolution, and consolidation has seen us expand our objectives and give expression to our ideals.
Today we eagerly anticipate the next cycle of our journey. In this publication we show you an overview of what we have achieved. The strong desire to make a positive contribution to society is something that we at the Foundation, our generous donors, and our many beneficiaries have in common. Through these pages we invite you to share our mutual pride and joy in accomplishing this goal. We thank you, too, for caring and wanting to participate in our philanthropic activities.
May the blessings of Allah be on all who serve.
