About The Carlsberg Foundation

The Carlsberg Foundation’s history goes back to 1876, when the founder of Carlsberg, brewer J.C. Jacobsen, by means of a deed of gift, donated DKK 1 million as capital for the establishment of the foundation.

Since then, the foundation’s primary objects have been to ensure value creation in Carlsberg A/S through our long-term, active ownership and to grant funding for philanthropic purposes as provided for in the foundation’s charter, including funding for Danish basic research within natural sciences, humanities and social sciences.
