The Florence Gould Foundation, an American foundation devoted to French-American exchange and amity, has consistently provided major support to Etant donnés. Born of French parents in San Francisco in 1895, Florence Gould lived both in the United States and France during her life. That life was one in which an interest and dedication to arts and letters was always paramount. Having no family, at her death in 1993, Florence Gould left the bulk of her fortune to the foundation bearing her name.
