Giesecke & Devrient Stiftung

Celebrating Our Roots – Shaping the Future

Family-owned Giesecke & Devrient can look back on almost 160 years of success as a company. Social responsibility is inherent in everything we do, based on both our history of commitment and company ethos. Accordingly, the company has decided to establish a non-profit foundation to take over some of its existing activities in the area of social commitment.

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 will focus on a range of subjects that include education and intercultural skills. The G&D Foundation both invests in its own initiatives and supports selected third-party projects.
