Aktive Bürgerschaft commits itself to creating a fair and capable civil society. We want to sustainably strengthen civic engagement and nonprofit organizations in the communities.
Community foundations enable broad sectors of society to become donors. They can strengthen the endowment capital of civil society and promote their communities and local nonprofit organizations in a permanent way.
Aktive Bürgerschaft supports 350 community foundations throughout Germany when it comes to management activities, projects, development and donor services. We offer advice, information, capacity building, set up networks and award the Aktive Bürgerschaft Award to community foundations.
The non-profit association Aktive Bürgerschaft is the competence center for civic engagement of Germany‘s cooperative banking group. Our activities are based on the cooperative values of self help, self responsibility and self administration.
