Learn more about the foundation

In cooperation with external partners, the Fritz Henkel Stiftung primarily supports projects in the areas of education and equal opportunities as well as projects with a need for social action. In 2022, 211 projects were supported, amounting to 2 million euros in total donations. This also included the continuation of long-term established activities, for example in cooperation with the organizations Habitat for Humanity, Teach First Deutschland and Joblinge e.V.

We support social initiatives and public institutions worldwide through Social Partnerships. The main objective is to promote projects in education and thus strengthen equity and social cohesion.

Together with Social Impact, an agency for social innovation, the Fritz Henkel Stiftung supported organizations and projects aimed at improving the lives of migrants as part of our Social Startup Pitch. Its motto: “Creating participation.” Both partners strive to strengthen equity and social cohesion through cultural education. The Social Startup Pitch, in which various social startups presented themselves to a jury, focused on the social participation of people with a history of flight or migration through educational opportunities in a cultural environment. As part of the pitch event, four outstanding start-ups were awarded prize money totaling 100,000 euros.
