The Foundation commissions task forces, public debates, and academic research to generate knowledge and awareness about the issues facing international philanthropy and civil society. The Foundation is currently developing the Tocqueville Foundation Academy Fellows Program that will identify and support university professors making outstanding contributions to civil society.
The Tocqueville Foundation co-sponsors, with the Fondation Prince Albert II, an annual closed-door forum of leading international philanthropists. The forum takes place in Monaco following the annual World Economic Forum in Davos. The forum helps philanthropists to exchange ideas, share experiences and collaborate in a confidential environment. His Serene Highness Prince Albert II and Chancellor Gabriel de Broglie of the Institut de France have moderated the annual forum since its inauguration in 2011.
The Freedom and Solidarity Forum, sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce in France, marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Overlord operation in June 2014 in Caen. The collaboration with the Tocqueville Foundations is one example of the Foundation’s support for key international fora that promote citizen engagement and democracy and the Tocqueville legacy.
