The University of Bremen Foundation as trustee

With a trust foundation, bright minds are supported under your name - permanently and securely.

Establishing and managing an independent foundation with legal capacity is very time-consuming. This is not the case with a trust foundation, as it does not require state authorisation. It is established by means of a contract between the founder and the trustee. The statutes define the organisational structures, state the specific purpose and regulate all succession issues. The University of Bremen Foundation manages the foundation's assets as special assets and minimises administrative costs. In this way, as much of the income as possible benefits the foundation's purpose. You or a board of trustees appointed by you decide on the use of the funds. To ensure a reasonable balance between expenditure and income, we believe that this form of foundation makes sense for endowments of €100,000 or more.
