20 years good

20.02.2022 is our lucky date! Exactly 20 years ago, 30 founding donors from Jena and the surrounding area got together to establish our foundation!

So much has happened since then: Thousands of people have become involved with and for us - in projects, at the Volunteer Day or SaalePUTZ or our numerous other large and small campaigns.

You can read more about our history here...

Our foundation capital has grown from €42,000 to almost €450,000 over the past 20 years. We would like to continue this trend! Imagine what could be achieved in 100 years with an endowment capital of 2.5 million € (and more!). And this is where you come in:

Our birthday wishes

Some may use this special date, 20.02.2022, to say yes to each other.

We want to challenge you to say yes too!

  • Yes to civic engagement in our city.
  • Yes to social cohesion.
  • Yes to the continuation and growth of our foundation, which has set itself these goals.

You can support us, with a donation or endowment in the amount of your choice: 20, 222 or 2002,22 €, easily with our online donation form.
