The Moleskine Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created in 2006 as lettera27 – an unconventional cultural incubator.
It takes lettera27’s heritage – people, values and projects – and brings it to a wider scale. The Moleskine Foundation embraces the experience of the founders of the Moleskine Brand, who are committed to applying the very values that led to the brand’s success to generate social impact. It operates in complete independence from the Moleskine company.
With a special focus on Africa and its diaspora, the Foundation works closely with local organizations to fund, support and co-create a wide range of distinctive initiatives. Together with their partners and grantees the Moleskine Foundation strives to catalyse systemic change through an open, participatory and cross-sectorial approach.
