Purpose

Help for those unable to help themselves

In accordance with its article of association, the Dr. Hans Messer Social Foundation follows three central sponsorship purposes:

  • To help those who rely on others as a result of their physical, mental or psychological condition.
  • To also support those who find themselves in need through no fault of their own in accordance with § 53 No. 2 of the German Fiscal Code. This takes place by means of one-off or continuous grants in order to eliminate or abate the circumstances of the needy in the long-term.
  • The Dr. Hans Messer Social Foundation also provides grants to top independent charity associations or other tax-privileged corporations active in the area of charity, as well as corporations or other tax-privileged entities for the care and treatment of serious illness which has occurred through no fault of the sufferer, in order to ease the work of these entities.
