About Us

Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc. (TWCF) was established by Sir John Templeton in Nassau, The Bahamas, to carry out his philanthropic aims on a truly global basis. Our mission is to find the world’s best minds and promote open-minded, forward-looking inquiry in a wide range of fields. We work with top academic institutions and leading experts from around the globe to support projects of the highest calibre and communicate the results of these projects.

Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc. is one of three charitable entities established by Sir John Templeton. The other entities are the John Templeton Foundation and the Templeton Religion Trust. While all three organisations have similar aims, they operate as separate charitable entities.
