Foundation

A foundation is a not-for-profit organization created by individuals and/or legal entities to engage in public, charitable, educational and other kinds of social activities. Since an Azerbaijani foundation is not subject to a minimum requirement for the number of founders, it may be created by one individual or legal entity. Moreover, they are not based on membership, i.e. the founders do not become its members. A foundation’s founders are not responsible for its obligations. Likewise, a foundation is not responsible for the obligations of its founders. The Civil Code sets a minimum amount of charter capital required for establishment of a foundation, which is AZN 10,000.
