(Capcom's primary storyline)
The Simmons Foundation was a charitable foundation run by Derek C. Simmons, an influential American civil servant and leader of The Family. The foundation served as the front for The Family, allowing the group to make donations without directly involving it. The Simmons Foundation owned a number of laboratories which became part of The Family's bio-weapons projects, including the C-Virus Projects, and was responsible for employing Dr. Carla Radames to one of these laboratories at the age of 15.
Due to an alteration in localisation, the Simmons Foundation (シモンズの財団 Shimonzu no zaidan ) is not mentioned in the English version of the game.
