The family of the late Sean Connery has announced the formation of the Sean Connery Foundation.

According to the announcement, the foundation will make grants in Scotland and the Bahamas “the two countries he called home.”

“Within these locations, the goal of the foundation is to accelerate positive change in areas of interest and importance to Sir Sean and his family, with an emphasis on education and ocean conservation,” the Connery family said.

The announcement was made on Oct. 31, two years after the original film James Bond actor died.

The foundation is on track to make 6 million pounds (almost $6.9 million) in grants by the end of this year, according to the announcement. Recipients include St. Andrews University, the Scottish Youth Film Foundation, and the Scottish International Foundation Trust.
