Makedonida Foundation

Makedonida Foundation

Makedonida foundation was founded in 1998 in the city of Skopje, North Macedonia, to support the implementation of a specific program, with the main goal of introducing cultural heritage in the education of the young generations in North Macedonia. The program became a huge success and Makedonida foundation was seen as a key organisation to protect their cultural heritage. For more than 20 years now, the foundation has been working with the public and private sector to not only protect North Macedonian cultural heritage but also the that of the wider Balkan area.

As a Foundation, their main goals are:

  • Protection of cultural heritage through, publication, documentary films, and exhibitions.
  • Monitoring heritage sites under threat
  • Lobbying at national and international level for the preservation of cultural heritage
  • Implementation of successful international and national projects in the fields of; restoration, conservation, research, and education.

 The Foundation believes that cultural heritage must be protected and respected. Cultural heritage is not just something from the past; it is something from the past that should remain in the present for upcoming generations to understand our stories better.

One of their latest projects has been the Valorisation of the Church of Saint George in Kurbinovo. The church and its frescos have a special place among the remarkable collection of Byzantine churches in North Macedonia. After some years of delay, the Church caught the attention of European scholars and architects to preserve and share with the world this beautiful Byzantine gem.
