The ‘Friends’ Programme – The Donation Platform

Would you like to create a foundation or your own project, but do not have the time or resources to carry it out? Do you possess the necessary capital and would like to utilise it meaningfully, but do not know how to get the ball rolling for your own initiative?

Then we would like to invite you to use our ‘Friends’ programme. We ensure that you do not have to spend time getting to grips with cost-intensive bureaucratic processes, which have to be considered when establishing a foundation and managing it sustainably:

  • an examination of all legal and fiscal aspects – establishment of the foundation and development of a charter
  • creation of a Board of Trustees and a foundation administration
  • creation of an account and an accounting department – depositing the donation proceeds
  • selection and continual monitoring of the projects
  • regular foundation meetings

All of this is already covered in our ‘Friends’ programme! Furthermore, we also provide public relations services, and provide you with a platform in the form of a website.

With a donation of EUR 15,000, you will be listed on our website as a ‘Friend’, you are then free to determine the beneficiary project, and are also permitted to introduce your own initiatives to our foundation (subject to our assessment). We deal with the administration and the on-site supervision of your project, and undertake appropriate public relations activities on our website. Here, the same applies: 100% of your donation is received by your chosen initiative. Your listing on our website as a ‘Friend’ is valid for a minimum of three years and, if desired, can also be accompanied by a short profile about yourself.

With a donation of EUR 50,000 or more, you will become a member of our foundation advisory committee, which advises the Board of Trustees on decisions regarding the use of donations. We look forward to hearing from you.
