Decision makers with good judgement

Board of Trustees

The Haniel Foundation Board of Trustees convenes in Duisburg twice a year to approve individual funding projects and make strategic decisions. As such, it functions as the foundation’s Management Board. If the decision makers require consultancy services, they draw on the assistance of external experts.
