The Fatherland Foundation was established on 13 June 1969 by the Latvian Association of Student Corporations to aggregate the donations of individual members of corporations into larger sums to be used to support Latvian education efforts. Its work is carried out by the Fatherland Foundation Commission and is supervised by the Latvian Association of Student Corporations. The organization aims to raise the profile of student corporations in academia and among young students.
