Giesecke & Devrient Stiftung

Celebrating Our Roots – Shaping the Future

Family-owned Giesecke+Devrient can look back on 165 years of success as a company. Social responsibility is inherent in everything we do, based on both our history of commitment and company ethos. Since 2010, the not-for-profit Giesecke+Devrient Foundation has been the vehicle for our corporate citizenship activities.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said: “There are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings”. Roots to keep both feet on the ground, even in turbulent times, and wings to overcome life’s challenges. To help achieve this, the G+D Foundation focuses on a range of subjects that include education and intercultural skills. The Foundation both invests in its own initiatives and supports selected third-party projects.
