Our Partnership with the King Baudoin Foundation (KBF)
Under the umbrella of the King Baudoin Foundation (KBF), the AIESEC Fund was created in May, 2014 by three senior alumni and is governed by a Steering Committee. KBF was created in 1976 and manages more than 350 funds that benefit from financial services as well as legal and fiscal advice in connection with KBF-US and TGE (Transnational Giving Europe).
