‘Creating educational opportunities and shaping integration’
In Germany, a child’s education is dependent upon its family background. This is what motivated Franz Haniel to set up a school and a fund for talented children in Ruhrort in his home town of Duisburg in 1856. And this is what motivates us to this day: with our sights set on creating educational opportunities and shaping integration, we support children and adolescents who have had a difficult start in life.
We are an EDUCATION FOUNDATION. We address current and urgent issues from the field of education by enabling people to tackle these challenges in the entrepreneurial spirit and for the common good.
Offering people prospects, promoting ideas
Targeted and sustainable: the Haniel Foundation wants its projects to have the biggest possible impact. To this end, it focuses on networking and partnerships with and between cooperative partners. It provides development stimuli and sees projects through to their sustainable establishment. The not-for-profit foundation currently donates around two million euros a year in funding to its focal areas of educational opportunities and the promotion of future generations.
‘Strengthening future managers and the image of entrepreneurs within society’
The Haniel Foundation stands for value-oriented entrepreneurship – out of a sense of tradition and conviction. Focusing on sustainable ideas and creative approaches to societal change, we promote talented up-and-coming managers.
