Support for the Schleyer Foundation across the generations

Donations and endowments are both welcome support for the Schleyer Foundation. However, you can also secure your long-term goals as a patron even after the end of your own life by making a bequest to the Schleyer Foundation in your will or establishing a trust fund in your name under the aegis of the Schleyer Foundation. Such gifting provides a stock of capital for the Foundation, which remains intact even as the earnings create a continuous and permanent source of income to fund our programmes. Moreover, donations to the Schleyer Foundation of this kind are exempt from gift and inheritance tax.

Effective patronage – and an enduring commemoration of the donor’s name

Donors can designate the purpose to which the funds they provide are to be devoted – for example, a specific form of sponsorship “tailor-made” to the donor’s wishes within the framework of the Schleyer Foundation’s programme.

Your commitment to the next generation

With an endowment to the Schleyer Foundation you can make a significant and enduring contribution to the future of our society whilst ensuring that how it is used accords with your own individual wishes. With their clear values, our wide-reaching programmes for young people guarantee your endowment a high degree of effectiveness with the benefit of a lean administration. Endowments can also bring tax benefits.

The Foundation already has considerable experience in such matters– not least due to the addition of the Friedwart Bruckhaus Foundation and the “Professor Max and Gisela Schneider Fund” as a result of bequests.

The Hanns Martin Schleyer Foundation is a non-profitmaking, civil law foundation for the promotion of science. The Foundation finances its work from investment earnings and donations. All donations go directly to fund our projects and, if so wished by the donors, exclusively to the Foundation’s programme of their choice.
