Our history

The Integration Foundation was founded on 31 March 1998 under the name the Non-Estonians Integration Foundation. Between spring 2008 and the end of 2009 it was known simply as the Integration Foundation.

On 1 January 2010 the Integration Foundation merged with the Estonian Migration Foundation,  which was founded on 10 June 1992. The joint institution bore the name of the Integration and Migration Foundation Our People until 15 March 2017.

As of March 15, 2017, the name of the foundation is again the Integration Foundation.

The Foundation was established by the Republic of Estonia, whose founders’ rights are exercised by the Ministry of Culture.
