Founded by lisbet rausing and peter baldwin, arcadia supports charities and scholarly institutions to preserve cultural heritage, protect the environment, and promote open access. Since 2002, we have awarded more than $500 million in grants to projects around the world.

We are committed to transparency, and believe that with better information, grant-makers can be more effective decision makers. You can find information about our grants on 360Giving and on our grants directory.
