The SENNEBOGEN Foundation

unbureaucratic help

The SENNEBOGEN Foundation was founded in 2009 by the Sennebogen family of entrepreneurs, namely Erich Sennebogen Sr., Erich Sennebogen and Walter Sennebogen. Since then, the charitable project has focused on three key tasks.

Firstly, the focus is on the promotion of education and vocational training. Here, the Foundation supports institutions and people by providing money and material resources, as well as by awarding scholarships and prizes for special achievements  and commitment. This is accompanied by the promotion of academic training, which aims to support students and graduates in both manual and academic training. Finally, however, the founders also attach great importance to the individual support of groups of people  in need. This is reflected in many regional support projects.

The Foundation Board is led by Erich Sennebogen (left) and Walter Sennebogen (right).
