April 26, 2018

The Co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), Mr. Andreas Dracopoulos, granted a comprehensive interview to journalist Mary Adamopoulou for the magazine Days of Art in Greece, regarding the SNF’s activities and goals.

In his interview, Mr. Dracopoulos, among other things, refers to the starting point of the SNF’s grant-making activity, noting that the Foundation aims “to contribute to society as a whole and more particularly, to offer support to the fellow citizens that need our help the most”. Mr. Dracopoulos adds that “the bedrock of our philosophy is caring for people; to assist their survival and progress”.

When asked about what distinguishes the SNF from other foundations in Greece, Mr. Dracopoulos, focusing on the shared values and common goals between the philanthropic organizations, underscores that “the objective is a common one, in other words to benefit the society”, noting also that “we’re content that others also want to contribute and our foundation remains steadily open to partnerships that may have exponential benefits for the community”.

The magazine hosts also an interview with the Managing Director of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, Mr. Nikos Manolopoulos, as well as with the Artistic Director of the Greek National Opera, Mr. Giorgos Koumendakis.
