Ηellenic Post supports all-important national endeavors and is fully behind the initiative of the “International Foundation for Greece” charity, which has established awards for Greeks who are playing an active role in shaping global society.


The Foundation’s awards, "IFG AWARDS', honour contemporary Greeks who live beyond the Greek borders, who not only have not  forgotten their Greek roots but who also showcase and bring to life the Greek ideal within their work, at the same time reminding the world that Greece was and is the cradle of western civilization.

Science: Professor Dr. Aristides  A.N. Patrinos, Researcher in biological, environmental, and engineering sciences.
Entrepreneurship: Andrew N. Liveris, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of “The Dow” Chemical Company.
