Established in 1982 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the Foundation was created to honor the legacy of His wife, Grace Kelly, an independent American woman, Oscar-winning Hollywood icon, and the globally beloved Princess of Monaco. During Her lifetime, tragically cut short by a car accident, Princess Grace brought arts and culture to Monaco while also personally supporting countless American performing and film artists. She left behind a legacy of personal and professional excellence, elegance, and radiant kindness.
