How we invest our money

Foundation assets as political leverage

Bewegungsstiftung supports social change not only with its funding, but also with its assets. To this end, it invests its foundation capital of around 8 million euros according to strict ethical-sustainable criteria - for example in housing projects, agricultural cooperatives and wind energy plants.
