BMW Stiftung

The BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt was established in 1970 in recognition of Herbert Quandt’s services to BMW AG. BMW AG, as the Foundation’s sponsor, and the bodies of the BMW Foundation consider the independence of the Foundation to be the prerequisite for its credibility as a non-profit, socio-political actor.


The BMW Foundation believes that today’s complex social challenges can be addressed through international, cross-sectoral dialogue and multiple collaborations.


We are convinced that if every individual takes responsibility for the common good and commits him/herself to utilize his/her competencies and expertise for social change, this will lead to an active, creative and socially coherent society driven by social innovation.We see ourselves as an effective and innovative platform that contributes to this vision and has an impact on social innovation and social cohesion.
