About the Commonwealth Foundation

The Commonwealth Foundation (CF) is an intergovernmental organization founded by Commonwealth Heads of Government in 1966, one year after the Commonwealth Secretariat. The Foundation is housed at Marlborough House in London, a former royal palace that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Commonwealth’s Head, has designated for the use of these Commonwealth institutions.

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 56 sovereign states that are independent and equal. Its singular strength stems from the combination of its diversity and shared ancestry. The Commonwealth Secretariat in London serves as the Commonwealth’s primary intergovernmental agency and its backbone, promoting democracy, the rule of law, human rights, good governance, and social and economic development.
