    incorporated, her spirit

    Anne's wish was to work for mankind, and therefore an Anne Frank Foundation has been incorporated in Amsterdam to work in her spirit.

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.

    Thank you Anglika.


    Some doubts :

    Could you tell me, what is the mening of `Foundation' and `incorporated', `headquarters' here?

    Re: incorporated, her spirit

    Foundation = an institution supported by an endowment
    incorporate = constitute [set up] a company, city, or other organization as a legal corporation.
    headquarters = the managerial and administrative centre of an organization.

    Thank you (for all threads) Anglika.

    But again three doubts :

    (1) Anne Frank Foundation = Anne Frank herself started many charity institutions.

    (2) Use of `headquarters' in your explanation suggest me that Anne Frank Foundation has many branches and managerial/administrative centre rests in Amsterdam.

    (3) In your explanation, you said that (which is run from headquarters.....) = What you mean `run' here?

    Please help me on this.

    Have a look at their website: Anne Frank-Fonds | Purpose

    To run something - a business, an event, an institution - means to manage it and ensure its daily activity is properly conducted.
