Hanso基金會 is an organization founded by Alvar Hanso, aiming to "reach out to a better tomorrow" by researching ways to preserve human life and promote well-being. The foundation also financed the DHARMA Initiative. Most of the information about them was acquired from the Lost Experience, though there have been some references to the foundation on the show. The Foundation's headquarters is located in Copenhagen, Denmark.
There have been three references to the foundation during the course of the show (excluding Lost Experience evidence). In "", the Swan Orientation film gives a brief history for the DHARMA Initiative, stating that the project was financed by Alvar Hanso, head of the Hanso Foundation.
There is also strong evidence to suggest that a conversation during a Sun flashback in "" also mentioned the Foundation. Her father Mr. Paik discusses an issue with an employee as she comes to his office to see him. This was the only piece of Korean during the episode not subtitled. Translations suggest that Paik was actually discussing forged documents required to ship Paik Motors equipment ordered by the Hanso Foundation. The men speaking with Mr. Paik seem to have had trouble securing the necessary shipping papers, causing Mr. Paik to become agitated, and warn that the Hanso Foundation will be very angry (or possibly that he will be angry if the issue is not swiftly resolved) .
The recently relaunched Hanso Foundation website operates in conjunction with the Lost Experience, an alternate reality game that is intended to reveal more about the Lost universe mythology. The website has now been completely revamped, with more sections and in-depth information about the Foundation and its key personnel.
However, with the revelation of a clue on June 16, the site was no longer accessible due to hacking by "malicious infiltrators," according to a placeholder page (although a 'back-up' of the Hanso Foundation site can be found at this link). Shortly after the explosive DJ Dan Live Podcast with Rachel Blake and release of the Norway Video, a statement from [Alvar Hanso] was found on the main page September 26th. This explanatory message issues his "endless regret [and] assurance...that the work of the Hanso Foundation has always been intended to bring rebirth to a dying land and a dying people." Thanks to his daughter, Rachel Blake, and the contributors to her cause, Hanso was freed to "dedicate his life and his Foundation...to building a future that can support, enrich, and cradle us all in peace and joy." Clicking on the word 'humanity' in the letter (end of the 3rd paragraph) changes the page to a picture of Mittelwerk saying "You've taken a battle, but that's all it was - a battle. Humanity needs me, now more than ever. I have the virus, I have the will and I will not fail."
The entire website is built in Flash, and there is a "hit area" in a circular pattern in the middle of the page. You can detect the "hit area" by listening for the alternate audio feedback you hear when mousing over the second humanity word. By tracing the "hit area" you can uncovered the following hidden message:
"Harsh light of inquiry in shadow. It is this shadow Dr. Thomas Werver Mittelwerk costs many their happiness. Some few have, I assure you now as I did then, that the work intended to bring birth to a dying land and this moment. The Hanso Foundation enters transparency and oversight will be our guiding principles. Response to feedback, our greatest strength, tap into just that – our humanity. Much thanks to the timeless efforts of my movement set against the dark entity and freed from Consortium. We at The, can support. "
The "Hit Area" is not a perfect circle and is not something that would be put in at random. The Flash Developer must select the hit area very precisely.
If you go on the hanso website (http://www.thehansofoundation.org) all seems boring. But if you click on the second instance of the word "humanity" in the third paragraph, you will get a looping video of someone saying, "You've taken the battle, but thats all it was, a battle. Humanity needs me, now more than ever. I have the virus, I have the will, and I will not fail." If you right click when the statment comes up, untick loop and press play, you will get this audio without the video.

Hanso Group companies
In 1881, a company called New World Sea Traders owned the Black Rock. The owner of New World Sea Traders, Magnus Hanso, may have been captaining this slaveship when it vanished in 1881. After the Black Rock disappeared, New World Sea Traders was sold to a company called the East Ocean Trade Group. In the 1950s the East Ocean Trade Group was taken over by the Hanso Group, who renamed the company Allied Copenhagen Marine Merchants. (Rachel Blake Copenhagen 02)
The Apollo Candy Company is also a subsidiary of the Hanso Group, after Alvar Hanso saved the company from near bankruptcy in the early 1970s.

Bad Twin description
In chapter six of Gary Troup's book Bad Twin, the Hanso Foundation is described as being located on the 42nd floor of the Widmore Building in New York City. According to the book, a plaque on the wall reads:
- "The Hanso Foundation stands at the vanguard of social and scientific research for the advancement of the human race. For forty years, the foundation has offered grants to worthy experiments designed to further the evolution of the human race and provide technological solutions to the most pressing problems of our time. The Hanso Foundation: a commitment to encouraging excellence in science and technology and furthering the cause of human development."
Also in chapter six, it is mentioned that googling Widmore Corporation pulls up "references to joint ventures with something called the Hanso Foundation..." In the last chapter, the Widmore Corporation board has Mittelwerk listed as a member from the Hanso Group.
As part of The Lost Experience, activist investigators Rachel Blake, DJ Dan and the late Gary Troup have reached out to the public to present evidence and share information suggesting that Hanso ethics, human-subjects practices and financial ties to corporations may be inappropriate, immoral, illegal or all of the above.
The public relations arm of the Foundation has characterized it all as a misguided, malicious misinformation campaign and has attempted to discredit the reports.
