The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung

The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung advocates for a vibrant state with a high quality of life for all its residents. It helps to pave the way for technological progress, high-quality education, and a responsible relationship among all human beings.


The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung is one of the largest private foundations in Germany. It focuses on three key areas: Research, Education, and Society and Culture. It is the only foundation which exclusively, and without regard for party lines, invests in the future of the state of Baden-Württemberg Stiftung—and thus in the future of its citizens.
