About the foundation

The DIGNITAS Foundation was established in 2012, issuing forth from a daring vision, namely to rebuild a nation’s solidarity by promoting the values that ground both the personal and the collective destinies: dignity, that is, self-respect and respect for others, belief in a common Good, knowledge and spirituality. We strongly believe that a people can only succeed historically through quality individuals, intelligent practices and healthy mindsets applied to education, culture, business and politics. We, the founders and team members of the DIGNITAS Foundation, have embarked on this mission in an effort to create institutions and support those social and individual projects, in our country and abroad, which relate to our stated purpose of changing the dynamics of the Romanian society, by harmonizing the positive energies and creating opportunities to capitalize on resources in every field. The principles that guide our actions are as follows: the moral integrity and professional acumen of our team, our partners and our beneficiaries, human kindness, independence, togetherness, collaboration, prioritizing the individual above all else, correctness, honor, courage, flexibility. These values we believe in drive us to take action, so as to create a community of people leading more fulfilling and beautiful lives than they are now.
Nicolae Titulescu’s words serve as an inspiration for all our initiatives, and cement our determination: “We each have a mission. If we stand together, how could we doubt our success?”
