The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center A.E. is an organization created under the legal status of a non-for-profit limited liability company, based on the Contract drawn up on March 2009 between the Greek State and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The Contract was ratified by the Greek Parliament under law 3785/2009. 

The purpose of the Organization is, on one hand, the planning, construction and outfitting of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, which includes the new facilities for the National Library of Greece, the Greek National Opera, and the Stavros Niarchos Park, and on the other hand, the overseeing, maintenance, security, organizing and operation of the Center after its completion, so that it remains in an excellent state, and fulfills completely its purposes.

During the realization of the Cultural Center, the Organization is controlled by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, which owns its only share, and appoints its Board of Directors. During this period the Organization’s only income is contributions and grants disposed exclusively by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
