The most important pillar of our corporate citizenship activities is the non-profit BHF-BANK Foundation. The foundation was set up in 1999 and supports initiatives that generate forward-thinking and groundbreaking ideas for life in German society.
The BHF-BANK Foundation concentrates on two areas: social and scientific projects with a socio-political background, and the contemporary arts and upcoming artists.
It is an operating foundation and in many cases it thus also provides the ideas and topics for new projects. It fosters projects that go beyond the beaten path in order to draw on unconventional ideas to address old and new topics. The work of the foundation is based on the conviction that trying out new things and exploring our creative potential is vital for life in our society.
Another organisation that benefits from our corporate citizenship activities is the Senckenberg Nature Research Society.
It is the parent organisation of the research institute and the natural history museum in Frankfurt/M.
By combining top international research and a unique natural history museum, the Senckenberg Nature Research Society puts the idea of closely linking education, science and culture into practice.
The "Freundeskreis Senckenberg" (Circle of Friends) is dedicated to attracting an increasing number of visitors to the natural history museum. The funds it generates are used to acquire new and valuable exhibits or finance exciting exhibitions and events.
