20 years of Bewegungsstiftung

Impressions of our birthday party

We support protest movements with money and advice. And we have been doing so for 20 years! We celebrated this in June with a matinée in Berlin. Here is a film, a report and many photos from the celebration.


Funding decided!

We award 140,000 euros.

We support two campaigns that advocate for affordable rents and equitable education.


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

What we have achieved so far

In 2022 we celebrate our 20th birthday. In this annual review, we have collected developments and successes.

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.

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.
