About us

Mission Statement of the Haniel Foundation

We are an EDUCATION FOUNDATION. We address current and urgent issues from the field of education by enabling people to tackle these challenges in the entrepreneurial spirit and for the common good.

Following the Leitmotiv of the VALUE-ORIENTED ENTREPRENEUR in the tradition of the Haniel family, we focus on creating education opportunities, facilitating integration and support FUTURE LEADERS. Our target groups are educationally disadvantaged ­children, youngsters as well as excelling young students and entrepreneurs who in the spirit of the respectable salesman take SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.
