Hanns-Seidel Foundation Charity Profile
"In the service of democracy, peace and development" – this is the motto that the Hanns Seidel Foundation applies to its work and mission. The motto applies not only for its commitment in Germany, especially in Bavaria, of course, but also abroad. Since its establishment on April 11, 1967, the Hanns Seidel Foundation has been practicing political education work with the aim of supporting "the democratic and civic education of the German people with a Christian basis" – as the foundation's statutes say. Hence, the political education work of the Hanns Seidel Foundation is based on a human ideal that includes both free personality development and autonomy as well as social responsibility and solidarity. Today, this mission is more important than ever, since requirements for more autonomy, a new "culture of independence" and an "active society of citizens" are increasingly evolving.
