The Foundation

Social development needs dialogue and understanding. Through our operational projects, in our networks, and with cooperations, we take on current social challenges in areas of activities comprising “Knowledge for Tomorrow”, “International Understanding” and “Vibrant Civil Society”, as well as with “Cultural Impulses for Hamburg”.

Inaugurated in 1959 by the entrepreneur Kurt A. Körber, we are now actively involved in our own national and international projects and events. In particular, we feel a special bond to the city of Hamburg. Furthermore, we run an office in Berlin.

“I want to instigate something with new initiatives. So if you want to call me an instigator, I agree with that.”
