Alwaleed Philanthropies was established to formalise the philanthropy passion of His Royal Highness Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud, a leading global businessman and member of the Saudi royal family. Alwaleed Philanthropies consists of three foundations dedicated to support humanitarian projects in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and around the world.
The programmes and projects supported by the foundation are broadly categorised under four focus areas: global cultural understanding, community development, disaster recovery and women empowerment. Alwaleed Philanthropies is driven by the guiding principle of “commitment without boundaries”.
Since the early 1980s, His Royal Highness Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal has worked with a tireless commitment to give back to society – at both a local and global level. With an endless passion for philanthropic activities that foster understanding, unity, wellbeing and opportunity for all humankind, Alwaleed Philanthropies was born.
Alwaleed Philanthropies consists of three philanthropic organizations: Alwaleed Philanthropies Global, focusing on philanthropic and humanitarian projects around the world, Alwaleed Philanthropies Lebanon, which is focused on the social and community needs of Lebanon, and Alwaleed Philanthropies Saudi Arabia, which focuses on the needs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
For over 35 years, they have supported thousands of projects in over 90 countries and served millions of people across the globe.
