The Franz Beckenbauer Foundation´s mission is to help those in need, financially and with advice. Our help is unbureaucratic, fast and effectiv. Any aid is funded by income from the Foundation´s assets, supplemented by donations from celebrities and institutions which support the idea behind the Foundation. Other sources of income include the proceeds from sports or social events organised by sponsors.
To ensure that the Franz Beckenbauer Foundation becomes a permanent institution, it was determined that the original capital stock of one million DM plus any later earmarked funds must remain untouched.
The granting of funds is controlled by the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Council, whose members all act on a voluntary basis. Both bodies are bound by law and the Foundation is subject to examination by the Foundation Authority.
