Page Overview: BMW Group - Responsibility - Commitment - Foundations



On the occasion of the company’s centenary in 2016, BMW Group expanded its commitment to corporate citizenship. Since then, the BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt and the Eberhard von Kuenheim Stiftung have been combining their activities in order to increase their global impact.

For this reason, the two foundations have consolidated their staffs and operations into the BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt, and the capital has been significantly increased. To account for the growing international orientation of the foundation, it was renamed “BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt” in 2017.
