The Wallenberg Foundations
The Wallenberg Foundations is the collective name for the non-profit public and private foundations established by individual members of the Wallenberg family or in honor of family members.
The Foundations granted a total of over SEK 1.8 billion in 2021. (The 2021 grants were affected by the ongoing pandemic and consequently reduced returns)

The other two large foundations are Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation (social sciences), and Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation (scientific research mainly within the humanities and learning).
