Welcome to INGKA Foundation
Supporting a better everyday life for the many people
INGKA Foundation is a Dutch foundation with a charitable purpose to create a better everyday life for the many people in need.
INGKA Foundation is the owner of INGKA Group, the largest IKEA retailer with more than 390 stores in 32 countries. INGKA Group works for a better everyday life for the many people by offering great home-furnishing solutions at prices so low that as many people as possible can afford to buy them.
By setting up INGKA Foundation in 1982, Ingvar Kamprad created a structure that can support a better everyday life for the many people while also securing the long-term ownership and independence of INGKA Group.
We achieve our charitable purpose by providing funding to the IKEA Foundation, a philanthropic grantmaking organisation. Like us, the IKEA Foundation was founded in 1982 by Ingvar Kamprad, but it is legally and operationally separate from INGKA Foundation.
The ownership of INGKA Group gives us resources to achieve our charitable purpose. The funding we provide for the IKEA Foundation originally comes from the dividends we receive from INGKA Group.
