The Dieter Schwarz Foundation ranks among the large German foundations; it becomes active where government bodies are not, or not sufficiently, able to meet the needs of the economy and society.
'Promote education, share knowledge, venture future' is the guiding principle of the Dieter Schwarz Foundation, named after Heilbronn entrepreneur Dieter Schwarz. The foundation is based in Heilbronn, where it has been active in the region and far beyond since 1999. Through its commitments, the Foundation today strives to promote that which makes society well-prepared for the future: a wide range of educational opportunities for people in different phases of life. Science is of decisive importance for the development and future sustainability of the state. Against this backdrop, one of the main objectives of the foundation is to recognize potential, to develop visions from it and to implement them sustainably.
