All donations to the foundation are exempt from inheritance and gift tax.

A donation receipt will be sent by mail to all legal entities for each donation amount by the German Foundation Centre. All individuals automatically receive a donation receipt for amounts exceeding 300 EUR. For amounts below 300 EUR, the payment proof serves as confirmation of the donation for submission to the tax office, in accordance with current legal requirements.

How can I support the foundation?
You can support the foundation’s goals in the short, medium, and long term through donations, endowments, legacies, or bequests.

Transfer a defined amount monthly, quarterly, or annually to the Kurt-Hahn Foundation. This helps the foundation increase its annual disbursements for its purpose, especially scholarships.

By donating to the foundation’s capital, you enable sustainable financing of scholarships and deserving projects from the capital gains.

Legacies / Bequests
You can contribute money to the foundation or support its assets by transferring securities and tangible assets. Even beyond your lifetime, you can contribute to providing additional resources for the foundation’s goals through your will. This can be done through inheritance or the establishment of a legacy.
This can be done in the form of a donation or an endowment.
The administration of this testamentary provision can be entrusted to the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (Donors’ Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany), which has extensive experience in this field.
