Purpose


The Foundation Papageorgiou was established in 1990 with the initial aim of building the "Papageorgiou General Hospital of Thessaloniki".

Upon being concluded, this task was followed by the erection and fitting-out of the nursery station to serve the needs of workers at "PAPAGEORGIOU General Hospital".

The goals of the Foundation Papageorgiou were enriched with the maintenance of the Lower - Upper Secondary School of the city of Siatista, donated by the Papageorgiou Family, and contributions in service of all manner of charitable purposes.

The Foundation is active in fields such as health, education, science, culture and the arts, supporting all such initiatives, selected at the discretion of the Foundation's Board.
