More and more people want to return something to their society. They have the desire to support others or to advocate social or tasks with a benefit for the public. In addition to personal involvement, a willingness to make a financial contribution has evolved. Selective long-term aid and assistance may be achieved by means of a foundation. It is an efficient vehicle to deliver the desired assistance in sustainable manner.
Germany is a country of founders! There are more than approx. 19,000 legally autonomous foundations; 95% of them provide public benefits. Beyond this, mutual foundations (trust foundations) are “up and coming”. Many providers are offering their services to these foundations. To separate chaff from wheat in this market segment therefore may become quite a challenging task. In this respect, it is advisable for the donor to seek professional guidance.
NEXIA Stiftungszentrum GmbH supports the founder/donor in planning and implementation of the mission of the foundation and/or the administration of the foundation assets. We are your professional counsel all the way from the founding act through accounting up to the annual statements. The core competence of NEXIA Stiftungszentrum GmbH is located in appropriate management of the foundation trust assets.
