Increasingly, people want to do more than donate funds to alleviate just one catastrophe or support one project. They want to give more, achieve something greater, have a more lasting impact. They want to create something for posterity, to make a difference beyond their own lives. And many want to do this together with Welthungerhilfe, in order to give people a chance to live free from hunger and poverty.
For a life full of confidence and reliance
As a result, in 1998 Welthungerhilfe Foundation decided to establish an independent foundation. This legal status makes it possible to retain the capital of our donors over the long term and to use the money for the project work of the association.
And this is important: Thanks to the income from the endowment capital, Welthungerhilfe can better plan its work. Therefore, we and our donors can support more people in shaping their own lives – without hunger and poverty, with confidence and trust in the future.
