Fondation de Luxembourg

The Fondation de Luxembourg recently welcomed two new members to its Board of Directors, chaired by Henri Grethen: Danièle Wagener, Vice-President of the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, appointed in April 2021, and Yves Kuhn, former Chief Investment Officer of Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, appointed in July 2021. They succeed Mariette Goniva and François Pauly, who have both served on the board since 2018.

Created by the Luxembourg State and the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte in December 2008, the Fondation de Luxembourg’s mission is to encourage, support and guide donors who wish to make a long-term commitment to significant philanthropic projects. The Foundation’s umbrella structure provides donors with a simplified framework in which to develop their philanthropic ambitions.

I would like to sincerely thank Mrs Goniva and Mr Pauly for their dedication to the Fondation de Luxembourg over the past few years. Together with the other members, we now warmly welcome Mrs Wagener and Mr Kuhn to the Board and look forward to our future collaboration, said the President of the Fondation de Luxembourg, Henri Grethen.

Mrs Danièle Wagener has served as Vice-President of the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte since 2019. Prior to her current position, she was the Director of the Villa Vauban for more than 30 years and of the Lëtzebuerg City Museum since its opening in 1996. Recognised for her experience and expertise in the cultural and artistic sector, she has been entrusted with several mandates in Europe, on expert committees such as the House of European History in Brussels, or the Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as on boards, such as that of Mudam – Musée d’art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, among others.

Mr Yves Kuhn will bring an expertise acquired during nearly 30 years in the investment sector to the Board of Directors, notably in his last position as Chief Investment Officer (CIO) for the Banque Internationale à Luxembourg. Originally from Luxembourg, his professional experiences have led him abroad, working for renowned institutions in London and Zurich, such as Swisscanto AG and Pictet Asset Management.

The Board of Directors of the Fondation de Luxembourg welcomes the two new members and looks forward to their future collaboration.
