Honoring the von Trapp
and Whitehead Heritage
Humans are wired for 'connection', an internal anchor that binds us together. Through a sense of connection to our self, family, history, and overall humanity, we can lead fuller, more peaceful lives.

The mission of the Georg & Agathe Foundation is represented in our logo to: Champion the Arts (Music Clef), Promote Peace (Anchor), and Archive & Educate (Pen). Together, these represent a stylized sailing ship (sail, ship's body, and crow's nest), symbolizing humanity's journey.
We focus on having an impact on raising awareness to the importance of music and art in our lives, encouraging solutions towards peace, and highlighting 'that which is not remembered is lost'. Our projects are to give-back, preserve & share history, and suggest resources on how to discover your roots. They align to one or more of our mission pillars, with the relevant icons showcased within each project summary.
Through our projects and by exploring our family's stories, we hope to inspire you to incorporate music and art in your life, make a difference in your community, research your own heritage, and discover more about culture and history.
Highlight 'that which is not
remembered is lost'.
It is important to collect and share stories, for that which is not written down is forgotten. Knowing our past is illuminating and can help us better understand our present. Often, the insights gained can become a steadying force in our lives.

Raise awareness to the importance
of music and art in our lives.
Far from being frivolous, science is proving the arts are fundamental to our wellbeing. It is the wind in humanity's sail, guiding our cultures, and crossing borders.
