The Domaine Public Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2013. It is funded through the Beirut Homes Group, hotel guests (a dollar on each checkout), generous donors and corporations that support its mission.
The Foundation seeks to build a better future for the city of Beirut through finding effective solutions to existing social, cultural, urban and environmental problems. Its aim is to improve public space within the city, and establish public programs that enhance the lives of the residents of Beirut, both permanent and transient.
