The foundation

KfW Stiftung is a foundation that engages directly with the major challenges facing our world – globalisation, environmental protection, climate and demographic change. 

We support initiatives questioning established patterns, identify alternative strategies and offer platforms for cross-border exchange. Our aim is to encourage pioneering ideas, to create a diverse economy, environment, society and culture and to take responsibility for the world we live in.
