Understanding the process
You must prepare a declaration stating that you wish to set up a foundation by a notarial act en minute.
You must send:
- A request for authorisation
- Two copies of the memorandum and statutes
The documents must be sent by registered post with a request for confirmation of receipt to:
Secrétariat Général du Ministère d'Etat
Place de la Visitation
The General Secretariat of the Ministry of State will publish a notice of filing in the Journal de Monaco. If there is no objection within three months, an authorisation to set up a foundation will be issued by Sovereign Ordinance, on the recommendation of the Government, after consultation with the Foundations Monitoring Committee, the Municipal Council and the Council of State.
