The Lontar Foundation, a not-for-profit organization based in Jakarta, Indonesia, was founded for the purpose of promoting international appreciation of Indonesian culture, primarily through the translation and publication of Indonesian literature.

Because of Lontar, it is now possible to study Indonesian literature anywhere in the world through the medium of English.
