20 years of Bewegungsstiftung

We look back on successes

This year we celebrate our 20th birthday. In this annual review, we have collected developments and successes.


Funding decided!

We award 63,000 euros.

We support five new campaigns that stand up for data protection, climate justice, affordable rents and against discrimination.


Millionaires demand in a public appeal: Tax us! They are demanding higher taxes for the wealthy in order to provide more opportunities for all. The initiative was launched by donors from Bewegungsstiftung to put pressure for more redistribution. More information at: www.taxmenow.eu

On May, the 30th we invite you to a film evening in Munich. On June, the 14th to an online meeting for people interested in foundations. Here is an overview of our next events.



Movement work

A life for protest

They make political engagement their profession - we back them up. The Movement Foundation supports full-time activists with a donation programme. Here we introduce our movement workers.


New brochure

We have revised our brochure on wills and inheritance. With facts, information and interviews from people who have themselves inherited or will inherit to others. You can order the free brochure here.



How can we achieve more tax justice?  We discussed this at an online event at the end of March.
Here is a video recording of the event.



Media reports

Money for the revolution: The Hamburger Morgenpost reports on our endowment donor Ive Hauswald and our movement worker Cécile Lecomte and what connects the two.



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.
