The MAVA Foundation is a family-led, Swiss-based philanthropic foundation, founded in 1994 by the late Dr Luc Hoffmann as a continuation of his deep personal commitment to conservation, and now led by his son André Hoffmann. The MAVA Foundation has an exclusive focus on the conservation of biodiversity and is active through five programmes: Mediterranean Basin, West Africa, Switzerland, Sustainable Economy and Impact & Sustainability. 2016-2022 is the foundation’s last strategic phase. The lifecycle of the foundation means that MAVA will phase out of its funding to all partners by 2022.
