Fauji Foundation (Urdu: فوجى فاؤنڈیشن), lit. Soldier Foundation), is a Pakistani conglomerates company which is active in fertilizer, cement, food, power generation, gas exploration, LPG marketing and distribution, financial services, and security services. The word "Fauji" ("فوجی") is an Urdu word that means "soldier" and the company was set up in order to provide employment opportunities to Pakistani ex-military personnel and to generate funds for the welfare of widows, and families of martyrs.
Fauji Foundation was established as a charitable trust in 1954, and operating on a completely self-sustaining basis, channels approximately 80% of the profits from commercial ventures into social protection programs that serve a beneficiary population representing approximately 7% of the country's population.
Spending more than Rs. 23.8 billion since inception on welfare, the Foundation provides services in the areas of healthcare, education, educational stipends, technical and vocational training.
Between 2011 and 2015, the foundation assets grew 78 percent.
A 2017 study found that 33 of a group of 141 former Pakistan Armed Forces corps commanders, or 23.4%, were given jobs by the Foundation after their retirement from the military. At any one time, as many as seven former corps commanders serve as either the managing directors of the Fauji Foundation or the Army Welfare Trust or as managing directors of subsidiaries with personnel in these positions rotated out every three years. The study says the Foundation plays a valuable role in preventing retired senior officers from intervening in the activities of serving officers and from entering electoral politics.
The Fauji Foundation medical system began with the establishment of a 50-bed TB hospital in 1959 at Rawalpindi. Today, the Fauji Foundation medical system is the largest medical chain outside the Government sector, spread all over Pakistan.
On health care, Fauji Foundation spends over 58% of the welfare budget. Fauji Foundation Hospital Rawalpindi and Fauji Foundation Hospital Lahore are well funded hospitals of Fauji Foundation. It is run by former officers of Pakistani Armed Forces.

The Fauji Foundation's education system aims to provide education to the children of ex- armed forces personnel, as well as to civilians.
