Buonacorsi Foundation

The Buonacorsi Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation created to support projects in the arts and sciences which promise to provide long-lasting positive impacts on the human condition.

The Foundation was formed in early 2009 with the primary goal of supporting and collaborating with the National Museum of Health and Medicine in various research efforts.

In addition to its support of the Museum, it also supports ongoing research at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, via a multi-year research grant the Foundation has given to the University.

The Foundation also supports the arts through sponsorship of the Beethoven Project Trio, which initially formed in order to perform a world premier in Chicago of previously-undiscovered Beethoven works, on March 1, 2009, and which continues to perform and record around the United States.
