The Foundation for German-Polish Cooperation (FGPC) is an institution under Polish law which has been providing funds for projects since 1991. These funds make it possible for German and Polish organizers to carry out various projects together. The foundation is based in Warsaw; however, all its issues are decided through an equal co-determination of Polish and German bodies. Until 2001, the Foundation for German-Polish Cooperation promoted the German-Polish cultural heritage through a high financial commitment. Monuments, churches and castles have thus been protected from deterioration and meeting places have been established. Since 2002, the FGPC is concerned with project investments which serve the purpose of meeting and the collaborating of people from Germany and Poland.
