Foundation for integration, education and sustainability
The elobau foundation is a non-profit endowment trust. Its foundation capital is the shares of the elobau Group in Leutkirch. Founder Michael Hetzer has provisioned these to the foundation for two reasons: on the one hand, this ensures the company’s long-term independence, thus guaranteeing continuity and autonomy. Secondly, this structuring of the foundation offers an opportunity to work actively in the non-profit sector and thus further strengthen the great sense of social responsibility that has always been lived in the company.
Our vision and mission statement
The elobau foundation is a cooperative, supportive, accompanying and individually active institution and civil society partner. With the firm conviction that social change usually originates from individual initiatives but can generally only be implemented in partnership-based cooperation, the elobau foundation sees itself as an instigator, facilitator and initiator of innovative solution models to constantly changing social challenges. Supported and internal projects include the fields of education, environmental protection and integration. Emphasis is placed on results and efficacy in achieving the goals set. These are also achieved through cooperation with other foundations, non-profit organizations and other non-profit institutions.
On the one hand, the foundation was established in order to sustainably and autonomously preserve our company. And secondly, with the foundation’s core aspects of education, environmental protection and integration, I deliberately chose charitable topics that are dear to my heart.
