FACE Foundation – the French-American Cultural Exchange Foundation – is an American nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting French-American relations through innovative cultural, artistic, and educational programs.

Promoting Artistic, Literary, and Educational Exchange and Collaboration

FACE Foundation

Founded on the principle of connecting French and American culture, FACE Foundation is a leading organization in cultural diplomacy. In partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, FACE Foundation promotes artistic, literary, and educational exchange and collaboration between creative professionals from both countries and beyond.

FACE Foundation administers grant programs in the performing and visual arts, cinema, translation, and secondary and higher education while providing financial sponsorship to French-American festivals and other cultural initiatives. The Foundation focuses on new and recent work of living artists and the promotion of bilingualism and the French language. Today the Foundation has two U.S. chapters in Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as programs, resources, and others in other major cities.

GRoW is honored to support FACE Foundation's latest programmatic endeavor called Villa Albertine. Villa Albertine promotes dialogue between France and the U.S. through artist-in-residence programs in ten cities across the country, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and others.
