Kr. Gerhard Jebsen Foundation

Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen is a Bergen-based foundation established to honour the memory of Kristian Gerhard Jebsen and his contribution to Norwegian and international shipping and business. Aud Jebsen has taken the initiative to establish the foundation together with her three sons, and has provided its assets. Its capital - which at the turn of 2010/2011 totalled NOK 900 million - permits substantial donations to various purposes with a wide-ranging object clause. After its creation in 2009, the foundation first concentrated its support on projects within the fields of medical and maritime research. In 2011, for the first time, it also reached out to the arts. A common denominator for its engagement is a vision of contributing to the realisation of projects on the highest international level. For more information:
