Building for the Future

Cur Non, the motto of the Marquis de Lafayette, was derived from the idea of why not.

Why not have the courage to live boldly? Why not engage in every aspect of learning? Why not use your intellect, energy, and talent to find your place in the world?

The Foundation, too, lives by this optimistic, joie de vivre motto. It underlies all of our partnerships and the numerous events and initiatives we craft each year. We are continually developing new, bespoke relationships suited to an institution’s unique expertise.

We invite you to join us on our journey to broaden cultural awareness across the Atlantic.
