The Turing Foundation is a Dutch charitable organization, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation, named in honour of scientist Alan Turing, was established in 2006 by Pieter Geelen, who donated the €100 million[1][2] he acquired from the IPO of TomTom, a company he co-founded.[citation needed]

The foundation contributes roughly €3,500,000 a year[3] to projects that:

  • provide education for children in developing countries,[4]
  • protect and conserve nature,
  • fight leprosy, and
  • allow people to enjoy art.
