Wilhelmsen

Tom Wilhelmsen's Foundation

The foundation is a private and independent foundation founded by ship owner Tom Wilhelmsen’s gift certificate in 1965. The Foundation's home is Nøtterøy.

The Foundation’s purpose is to distribute gifts or contributions to institutions, groups or individuals to support any measure of a scientific, social, humanitarian and cultural nature, as well as by scholarships or similar, to cater for performing artists and encourage the ability of youth or others to continue their education, study or research. Since the foundation's start in 1965, we have awarded more than 3,000 scholarships.
