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.

It was a charitable organization which was particularly dedicated to reviving Sicily.[1]

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.[1]

Francesca Corleone, Michael's niece, also helped with the foundation for a time.[2]
