The CALEO Foundation is a private foundation with the prime objective to make a legacy investment in the fields of medical research, fine art and nature conservation through a well-endowed trust.

With these objectives in mind, the mission of the CALEO Foundation is to support art and artists, to protect and, wherever possible, to restore and sustain threatened ecosystems, wildlife and flora resources and their habitats, especially in South Africa, for the benefit of present and future generations.

The CALEO Foundation awards scholarships and also supports institutions promoting art and artists. Institutions which carry out or supervise animal experiments are strictly excluded.
