Herz HD Stiftung

Objective of our foundation

The purpose of the foundation is the promotion of non-profit and charitable goals. Since January 1st 2002 the Internal Revenue Service in Heidelberg approved the foundation as a charitable organisation which makes all the contributions tax deductable. 

The foundation’s bylaws allow for flexibility as long as the proceeds are used for the following:

  • To support of “people in need” (e.g. the sick, elderly, disabled children)
  • To promote education  (e.g. support of children homes, schools and youth centers)
  • For scientific research (e.g. cancer research)
  • To further the peaceful co-existence of different cultures and co-operation in societies (e.g. peace corps mission of churches)
  • To promote of culture and the arts

Since 2000 all contributions have been used for the education of AIDS orphans and disabled children in Zimbabwe. Since 2012 the foundation is financing instead a pre-school project. You can find more information on the „projects“ page.
