Ethical investment

Bewegungsstiftung also supports the co-housing and co-working project Grether West in Freiburg with a loan.

Whether it’s the factory yard in Lübeck, the wind energy system »Masse Wind« or the tenement syndicate in Freiburg - the Bewegungsstiftung promotes social change. We do this not only by the annual income of the investment of our assets, but also by the assets themselves. We invest our foundation’s capital in alternative projects, savings bonds and in environmental and social funds.

So the money of our founders helps twice!


Definitely More Revenue

Our investment reflects our ethical and sustainable investment policy and the economic interests of our foundation.
As a foundation, we are interested in a long-term, secure yet profitable investment. The amount of assets should remain nominal in any case. The goal of the foundation is pursued by the means of annual income. Most of the earnings should be available as liquid means.

Examples to follow (in most cases)!

In terms of tax legislation or requirements of liquidity and safety, foundations underlie conditions that are totally different from the ones presented to private individuals or non-profit organizations.
While we explicitly recommend emulation of our ethical and sustainable criteria, we warn explicitly against applying our portfolio structure one-to-one on private assets.

Protest Saving - benefit from our knowledge

You have savings for which you do not need any interests at the moment? You would like to support social movements, but you dont want to donate money? Then take part in our programme "Protest Saving". It works like this: You give us a interest-ree loan - we invest the money in an ethical-sustainable asset. The interests go to our funds for protest movements.

Your advantage: We take on two tasks from you: The decision of what is a good campaign and searching for an ethical and sustainable investment. Both is decided and monitored by experienced foundations committees.
