"Who we are is as much about what came before as it is about what comes next. We must link our heritage with our tomorrow to give our children a world we would be happy to inherit." - Princess Stephanie
Responsibilities of the Sarachaga Foundation includes a focus on social action and community organization, along with care of antiquities, art, manuscripts, and memories.
The Sarachaga Society is dedicated to the preservation of cultural memory, with a focus on the Basque people, and others who have been effected by war and diaspora.
This tradition of stewardship reflects Princess Stephanie's great great grandfather, Prince Alexis, Sovereign Baron de Sarachaga, the founder of the Musée du Hiéron in Paray-le -Monial, France, with satellites and partner organizations throughout the world.
Sarachaga Foundation: Focussed on Prevention and Community Development
The Sarachaga Foundation is dedicated to taking a positive first view towards community and economic development. As such, the Foundation looks at the community as an integrated organism and works to both promote the positive and mitigate the risks.
To achieve this the Foundation engages in community analysis as well as interventions. Most are via community partnerships and strong stakeholder alignment.
Currently the Sarachaga Family is focussed on assisting in economic development via micro lending programs and community banking, supporting in educational attainment via conversations on innovations in education and supporting school programs, such as the Architecture + Design Charter High School, the first of its kind in the U.S. The Sarachaga Family is also intimately engaged in the battle against the opioid epedimic in the United States.
The foundation created a policy education platform, Real American Values, to discuss issues at the heart of the divide in U.S. politics. The focus is on the future of labor, education, and entrepreneurship.
