The Florence Gould Foundation, an American foundation devoted to French-American exchange and amity, has consistently provided major support to Etant donnés. Born of French parents in San Francisco in 1895, Florence Gould lived both in the United States and France during her life. That life was one in which an interest and dedication to arts and letters was always paramount. Having no family, at her death in 1993, Florence Gould left the bulk of her fortune to the foundation bearing her name.
Under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Institut français implements France’s cultural action abroad. Its role is to act as the conduit for a “diplomacy of influence,” which includes promoting visual art, architecture, and design and lending support to artists living and working in France, Africa, and the Caribbean. By fostering dialogue between French and foreign cultures, the Institut français responds to the needs of France via a policy of listening, partnership, and openness to the world.
Albertine Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation and contributions to its programs are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
