Custodians of the Invictus Spirit
The People Behind The FoundationEstablished in 2014, the Foundation is the charity that governs the delivery of the Invictus Games and acts as custodians of the Invictus Spirit.
The executive team is led by CEO Dominic Reid OBE, who was responsible for the delivery of the inaugural Invictus Games London 2014. We are proud that a third of the team are members of the wounded, injured and sick veteran community and Invictus Games alumni, ensuring our work is directly influenced by the Invictus community.
Partnership has always been at the heart of the Invictus Games Foundation. Without the collaboration, contribution and dedication of so many people and organisations, our work would simply not happen.
Connecting the world as one Invictus Family
Our Invictus Family is as diverse as the 23 countries that are part of the Community of Nations. It is a community drawn from across all services, ranks and experiences within the international armed forces. Invictus means 'unconquered' but to wounded, injured and sick personnel, their families, and the support teams around them in their countries, it means much, much more.

The documentary series “Heart of Invictus” is part of a partnership between Netflix, Archewell Productions and the Invictus Games Foundation. The Duke of Sussex and Archewell Productions are redirecting all compensation they would otherwise receive for this project to The Invictus Games Foundation, to support our work with international wounded, injured and sick service personnel.
The Invictus Games London 2014 was coordinated and supported by the Royal Foundation, out of which the Invictus Games Foundation was born. The Endeavour Fund was also curated by the Royal Foundation, but in 2020, was transferred across to the Invictus Games Foundation.
It was misreported at the time that the Royal Foundation had 'gifted' £500k to the Invictus Games Foundation. The transfer amount we disclosed in 2021 actually reflects the move of the Endeavour Fund grants programme out of the Royal Foundation and into the Invictus Games Foundation, to create one home for supporting the recovery of international wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.
