What is Urantia Foundation?

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Urantia Foundation was established in 1950 to be the publisher and custodian of the inviolate text of The Urantia Book. The Foundation is also responsible for ensuring that the teachings are disseminated throughout the world, and it seeks to achieve this with the help of readers and social organizations.

From an organizational perspective, Urantia Foundation is a non-profit edu­cational foundation that operates under a Declaration of Trust. It has been publishing the original English edition of The Urantia Book since 1955.

Urantia Foundation’s main activities are publishing, distributing, and trans­lating The Urantia Book. The Foundation endeavors to make The Urantia Book available in libraries and bookstores and from major distributors, including Amazon. Regarding translations, the Founda­tion’s Trustees and staff seek to provide editions that are accurate, attractive, and moving, wording that is as beautiful and appealing to native speakers as if the original text were written in their language.

Over 700,000 copies of The Urantia Book are now in print. The book is available in Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Lithu­anian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. The Romanian translation is available on CD. Many more translations are in the works including Chinese, Japanese and Farsi.

In addition, Urantia Foundation publishes a range of study aids, including an exhaustive concordance, an audio version of the original text in English (MP-3 format), and a computer edition on CD-ROM that contains the original text and several translations, along with the FolioViews search program.
