The BayWa Foundation
Responsibility towards the disadvantaged
The BayWa Foundation was established in 1998 with the aim of initiating and supporting sustainable national and international educational projects in the fields of nutrition and renewable energy. What makes the Foundation unique is that 100 percent of all its donations flow directly into projects, as BayWa AG covers all of the administration costs. Furthermore, BayWa AG matches every donation given to the Foundation, which makes each contribution worth twice as much.
Education plays a prominent role in all the projects we are involved in. This is because we believe that education is essential to sustainable development. By taking a long-term approach to the way we work with people, we give them the chance to help themselves, ensuring that less advantaged groups will be able to develop for the future. Find out more!
