What we do
Education provides the foundation for a bright future, both for individuals and society as a whole. Our projects support the education of both adolescents and young adults. We want to stimulate their interest in, and enthusiasm for, personal and professional development and encourage them to take on 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 Foundation is primarily involved in projects which it develops and implements 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, additional funding has been granted to support research projects in the fields of medicine, law and engineering technology.

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".
