In the awareness of the social responsibility of a successful media company, the management at that time decided to put the transmitter’s existing charitable commitment on a stable footing. The goal is to provide sustained support for the most vulnerable in society, the children – both in Germany and abroad.

In the past they have funded projects like: health projects (eye health) for children and adults, construction of therapy rooms for disabled children, support for abused children and their families, education projects for children in Africa, etc.
