The BayWa Foundation
The BayWa Foundation promotes education!
Education is the key to the future - this is not just a phrase, it is the only true strategy for helping people in the long term. This is why education is always at the centre of all projects of the BayWa Foundation.
Since 1998, the BayWa Foundation has been supporting educational projects for healthy nutrition and renewable energy. More than 60 projects have already had a sustainable impact at home and abroad.
The BayWa Foundation was founded by BayWa AG: The Foundation is the company's answer to urgent questions of the future and a commitment to people. What is special about the BayWa Foundation: BayWa AG bears the administrative costs of the Foundation and doubles every donation. Thus, 200 % of the donations flow directly into the projects.

“For BayWa, our strength is firmly connected with our voluntary social commitment. The BayWa Foundation supports over 20 sustainable education projects in the areas of healthy nutrition and renewable energy. This allows the BayWa Group to provide answers to the pressing issues of the present and shape the future for future generations.”
Andreas HelberChief Financial Officer of BayWa AG and Deputy Chairman of the BayWa Foundation
“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.”
Eva BoeszeHead of Corporate Human Resources at BayWa AG and a Board Member of the BayWa Foundation
“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.”
Managing Director of the BayWa FoundationMaria Thon
" '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.”
