Page Overview: BMW Group - Responsibility - Commitment - Foundations



We are changing mobility.

When recent graduates from Asia and Europe work together on society’s challenges; when children learn what sustainability really means; when young people without an apprenticeship are given an opportunity on the job market – these are just a few of many examples that demonstrate the social commitment of our charitable foundations.

The BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and the BMW AG Eberhard von Kuenheim Foundation are legally and functionally independent institutions that work in part with the BMW Group. With their projects the foundations claim is to inspire people to take responsibility and to contribute with their own ideas in the community, the economy and for a sustainable society. In 2016 foundation activities will be refocused, with the BMW Group’s two foundations – BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and the Eberhard von Kuenheim Stiftung – consolidating to pool their strengths as a single organisation.
