the Philips Foundation

Through innovation we can solve many of the world’s toughest challenges


Our philosophy  

Affecting social change is about more than money alone. Long-lasting improvements to peoples’ lives can only be achieved by taking a collaborative, strategic and creative approach. Royal Philips believes that the world’s toughest challenges can be only solved through innovation, collaboration and a commitment to looking at the world through the eyes of those most in need. It is this philosophy that guides the Philips Foundation, an independent, registered charity set up in 2014 by Royal Philips.

Innovation that improves the lives of people and communities everywhere. This is the story of Royal Philips and the heart of the Philips Foundation.
