What we do
Education is the foundation for a bright future, both for individuals and society as a whole. By means of our projects, we open up routes into education for both young people and young adults, stimulate their interest in, and enthusiasm for, personal and subject-specific further development, and encourage them to shoulder responsibility.
We are dedicated to promoting education, science and research in the natural sciences, in economics and business administration as well as in the field of personal development.
The Joachim Herz Stiftung is primarily involved in projects it develops and realizes either on its own or in cooperation with other charitable organizations. In addition, we also provide grants for small, innovative third-party projects. These projects are characterized by the critical questioning of facts as well as acceptance of other cultures, other ways of thinking, and other ways of working.
Since 2017, we also support research projects in the fields of medicine and law.
Our International Projects
Most of our projects are focused on Germany. On this site, however, you can find out about our international projects in our program areas "Understanding Science", "Strengthening Personal Development" and "Comprehending and Shaping the Economy".
