- "The Vito Corleone Foundation helps the poor in every country, gives grants to artists, funds medical research, and is particularly dedicated to the resurrection of Sicily."
- ―Mary Corleone[src]
The Vito Corleone Foundation was a foundation started by Michael Corleone some time after 1959 and named in honor of his father Vito Corleone. It was chaired by Michael's daughter Mary Corleone, who was more of a front for the criminal activities associated with the foundation, which also provided most of its funding.
In 1979, the foundation gave archbishop Gilday a check for a 100 million dollars in the name of Vito Corleone, to assist in the economic resurrection of Sicily. It also received a donation from Don Altobello for one million dollars so he could attach his name to the foundation.
