We provide funding
We fund innovative projects in line with the principle of “helping people to help themselves,” with a focus on health and skills to improve the situations of disadvantaged people in the long term.
Our funding projects and disaster relief around the world
Here we present some funding projects that are either still ongoing or have recently been completed.
As a company foundation, we support BASF’s social commitment and help disadvantaged people improve their situation.
Thanks to our work in disaster relief and by funding development collaboration projects around the world, we are contributing to the BASF corporate strategy, particularly with regard to sustainability and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals
We are delighted that you trust our work. We carefully select the projects and our partners and provide support throughout the entire implementation process. Our network of partners guarantees successful implementation thanks to its experts on the ground.
The last section of the website shows how your donation can reach us.
Yes. The BASF Stiftung forwards your donation – without any deductions – to a specific project if you specified a purpose in your bank transfer. We do everything we can to ensure that your donation helps people in need.
Donations of up to 300 euros can be submitted to the tax office without a receipt (donation certificate), as the deposit slip (e.g., account statement) can be submitted as proof.
If you donate more than 300 euros, we can issue a donation certificate if you are a German resident. In this case, please write to email@example.com and provide your name, address, the date and the payment method (credit card, PayPal, bank transfer).
The donation certificate will be sent to you by the start of the year at the latest, enabling you to submit your tax return on time.
For the majority of projects, we work with large UN organizations as they have the requisite expertise on and networks in the respective countries. We also fund other projects in exceptional cases, provided that they fit our focus topics and selection criteria.
