My son François was passionate about rescuing people. As a helicopter pilot, it was his job – but also his life. When he died, I wanted to keep François’ passion alive by promoting the things that fascinated him, and by rescuing orphans and people around the world from extreme poverty. And so FXB was born, with the ultimate aim to bring about peace and security in the world by focusing on children, youth and women.

FXB Foundation

The FXB Foundation has invested in many of the things that fascinated François-Xavier and inspired his life: a love of the Valais and the Alpine region where he worked, a fascination with flight and space, his academic studies and the promotion of human rights and public health around the world.
