This allows the BayWa Group to provide answers to the pressing issues of the present and shape the future for future generations.”

“Every donation is valuable and flows directly into the projects. Because, the special feature of the BayWa Foundation is that BayWa AG takes over all administrative costs and also doubles every amount donated. Every donation counts.”

“With the BayWa Foundation, BayWa AG assumes social responsibility and thus also passes on the idea behind the foundation to more than 17,000 employees. The foundation receives a great deal of support from BayWa employees. Besides helping with their donations, they also volunteer their skills and abilities in the projects. By doing so, employees also experience valuable personal added value. Promoting young talents also plays an important role. By awarding scholarships, we give students the opportunity to become acquainted with BayWa AG as an attractive employer and to build up a network that often lasts for many years.”

"'Many little people doing many little things in many little places can change the face of the world.' A Tanzanian proverb that uses simple language to describe a great hope. Thanks to your support, children are gaining practical knowledge about healthy nutrition and renewable energy, students are receiving financial and moral support, women in developing countries are receiving education opportunities and traumatised young people are receiving the help and warmth that they need to shape their future.”
