We are an international grant-making organization with a mission to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular disease and stroke. By forging scientific alliances that transcend national borders, and educating young researchers who thrive in an international context, we hope to promote the development of long-term collaborative relationships and to foster innovation in cardiovascular and stroke research, in order to change the way that patients with cardiovascular and neurovascular disease are diagnosed and treated.
The Leducq organization includes the Leducq Charitable Trust and the Leducq Foundation, both based in the Bahamas, the United States-based Leducq Foundation for Cardiovascular Research, a not-for-profit private foundation under the 501(c)(3) tax code, and Broadview Ventures, Inc., a Boston, Massachusetts based venture philanthropic program dedicated to accelerating the development of innovative technology for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and stroke through targeted investments. The Leducq Corporation, also located in Boston, MA, provides administrative services to the Leducq organization’s grant-making entities.
The Leducq organization also includes Ehlers Estate, a Napa Valley vineyard formerly owned by the Leducq’s and now controlled by the Leducq Charitable Trust.
