6. Community and the KAEFER FOUNDATION
A year of giving generously Founded in 2010, the KAEFER FOUNDATION is the heartbeat of our charity and community work. Financed through donations from KAEFER employees and friends around the world, the Foundation exists to support our employees (and their families) through periods of acute crisis. The Foundation also works on longer-term projects with local and international NGOs, including in the areas of academic and scientific research, youth development, health care, and environmental protection.

Global movement – the Venuslauf The KAEFER FOUNDATION recently celebrated the 3rd edition of a fast-growing fundraising event at the company, a global initiative involving all our teams and business units from around the world. In total 2,600 KAEFER people took part in Venus Runs during 2022, in every country where we operate, covering 31,101km between them and raising almost 30,000 EUR for cancer charities.
Supporting the local community – wherever we operate
People at KAEFER take action. The inspiration to make a difference can come from anywhere and there’s no need to wait for the KAEFER FOUNDATION to get involved. A perfect example occurred in Bremen during 2022. After a chance conversation with representatives from our coffee supplier, we began supporting Aktion #Kinderpläne – a voluntary association committed to ensuring that children grow up healthy, educated, and protected from violence.
KAEFER people are involved with numerous initiatives around the world. Learn more about some that caught our attention during 2022.
