A Thousand Years of Tradition, A Million Reasons to Contribute
The American Foundation of Savoy Orders is a non-profit charity, headquartered in New York City and established in 1993.
We provide grants in support of humanitarian, medical, educational and social assistance, including: children's causes, veterans’ programs, disaster relief for earthquake and flood victims and scholarships for college and graduate students in the arts and sciences and international studies. The Savoy Foundation also sponsors and organizes an annual lecture series given by distinguished scholars and masters in their respective fields on topics related to the House of Savoy and the history of Italy, Italian literature, art, music and science.
These charitable and humanitarian purposes are in keeping with the centuries old hospitaller traditions of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, one of the oldest institutions of Western and Christian civilization, founded in 1572 and stemming from the eleventh century hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem. Contributions to the Foundation and its charitable projects are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
