Enhancing our living environment

Turning good ideas into successful projects – foundation support from EWE provides financial backing for associations and institutions in EWE's regions and enriches the lives of local people. We look for variety in the areas we support, from educational initiatives and exhibitions to concerts and smaller research projects.

The WaldWelten (Forest Worlds) in Eberswalde and the Science Forum at the Europaschule in Westerstede are examples of projects that strengthen education about the environment and democracy. Through our own unique initiatives, such as the Klaus von Klitzing Prize, the "EmergenSEAKit" learning kits for schools and the Helene Lange Prize for young female researchers in digitalisation, we provide inspiration and actively participate in shaping contemporary topics.

Our profile – Your projects

For the past two decades, the EWE Foundation has promoted social commitment and voluntary work as a way of bringing people together who are committed to their communities and share a sense of responsibility. As a support foundation, we focus our efforts on education, art and culture, as well as research and science, in the areas between the Ems, Weser, and Elbe rivers, in parts of Brandenburg, and on the island of Rügen.
