About us

The Haniel Foundation promotes individuals who wish to have a lasting impact on the shape of the future by exploring new avenues with courage and a sense of vision. We champion value-oriented entrepreneurship and support educationally disadvantaged children and adolescents and especially promising up-and-coming managers.
