The VELUX FOUNDATION is a non-profit foundation established in 1981 by Villum Kann Rasmussen, the founder of the VELUX Group and other business enterprises in the VKR Group, whose mission is to bring daylight, fresh air and a better environment into people’s everyday lives.

The VELUX FOUNDATION makes grants to older persons to enable and encourage them to make an active contribution to developing and improving their own lives and those of others.
The VELUX FOUNDATION supports gerontological research, ophthalmological research and humanities research projects.

Besides these special focus areas, the Foundation donates funds for cultural, environmental, social and artistic purposes.
