The Agitos Foundation - Who We Are

We are the development arm of the International Paralympic Committee and take our name from the Paralympic Symbol – the Agitos – which is derived from the Latin verb "to move".

We work on a global basis to attract funding – philanthropic donations and grants – as well as a wide range of non-financial strategic support. Our key focus is to distribute these resources and expertise to the parts of the world where they are most needed. 

We do this by designing and delivering a number of core programmes that address common worldwide issues. This includes making grants available to the IPC membership.

We operate a rigorous monitoring and evaluation process for all our grantmaking and programme delivery.

We are convinced that Para athletes make a huge difference to the perceptions of ability and that we can make for an inclusive world through sport.
