InBev-Baillet Latour Fund and Baillet Latour Chair in Philanthropy and Social Investment

InBev-Baillet Latour Fund and Baillet Latour Chair in Philanthropy and Social Investment

The InBev-Baillet Latour Fund  was created at the end of the 1970s upon the initiative of Alfred de Baillet Latour, manager without heir of the Artois breweries. Nowadays, the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund grants nearly 3 million euros yearly, mainly to four sectors representative of Belgian excellence at the international level: medical research, training, Belgian heritage and Olympic spirit.

The Baillet Latour Chair in Philanthropy and Social Investment  was born from a partnership between the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund and HEC Management School of the University of Liege. The Baillet Latour Chair aims to study and understand the various forms of philanthropy, in Belgium and in Europe in particular, but also to valorize and teach philanthropy. The Chair currently develops a research programme focusing on Belgian foundations. It offers various courses on philanthropy and social investment within the University of Liege, as well as many activities open to all and which help professionals and the general public to know philanthropic action better.
