Championing the work of nonprofits that strive to make the world better, more sustainable, and just.

About the Foundation

The Soloviev Foundation is the charitable giving arm of the Soloviev Group, dedicated to supporting the efforts of those working across humanitarian, environmental, and educational causes.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple and intentionally broad: to help make a better world. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our partners in this work. The Foundation’s gifts go to both large, long-established institutions addressing global crises and concerns, and smaller, hyperlocal organizations serving the populations in need within their communities.

Our Process

Our process and criteria for determining the recipients of Soloviev Foundation gifts are straightforward. We identify a need that aligns with our values and seek out the nonprofit organizations best-suited to address that need most effectively and which can make the largest impact. While all causes are considered in our giving plan, we are especially committed to supporting at-risk children, promoting values in society, and encouraging social responsibility.
