The Donato Foundation is a fictional organization on the television program Eternal Night. It dates back to the mid-XVIIIth century at least and seems devoted to obscure areas of history and archeology. Among its other enterprises have been scholarships, funding of expeditions, sponsoring museums, etc.
Increasingly, though, it is clear that the Foundation has some other kind of agenda. It engages in covert operations, including the destruction of public records involving criminal activities (such as those associated with the so-called 'Toronto Stalker') and has been keeping the Rollins family under surveillance.
Operatives of the Foundation sometimes refer in hushed tones to "The Board" to whom they must report and from whom they receive orders.
