The Lipoid Stiftung is a legally responsible public civil rights foundation. It was created for the funding of non-profit and charitable goals. Our focus is on supporting children with disabilities as well as on children who grow up under adverse living conditions.
We are a company-based foundation. The entrepreneurial activity is the material basis for the foundation’s charitable work. Recipients of company funds include the Lipoid Stiftung as well as scientific institutions. Individual companies within the Lipoid Group also support social projects in their respective regional settings with additional funds.
The foundation was created by the Rebmann family in 2011.
Our Foundation Purpose.
The Lipoid Stiftung Charter names the following foundation objectives (§ 2):
- Supporting children in need, including children with illnesses, disabilities, or children with social disadvantages
- Supporiting charitable and non-profit institutions that care for people who are ill or otherwise in need
- The financial support of archaeological and paleontological research in the German-speaking world
- Supporting scientific work and institutions
We want to improve the living situations of people as directly as possible through our support in the social sphere. At the same time, it is important to us that our sponsorship develops positive effects beyond the funding period. We therefore additionally support the sustainability of institutions or our partners’ projects as well as the transfer of knowledge.
