The BMW Foundation sees itself as a networking foundation. We are convinced that we can fully use our potential and work most effectively when cooperating with others.
“Responsible Leaders” are important partners for us. This is how we call the almost 2,000 international leaders from business, politics, and society who have participated in the BMW Foundation’s various Young Leaders formats since 1995. We stimulate and motivate them to get engaged in a vibrant civil society and bring them together in a variety of initiatives across sectoral boundaries and social and cultural differences.
In addition, we cooperate with a wide variety of actors both at home and abroad – government departments, foundations, associations, think tanks, social enterprises or nonprofit organizations – to broaden our impact. Many partnerships are focused on thematic issues. Moreover, we provide support to individual organizations, initiatives or people that share our goals.
