Berenberg Bank Charitable Foundation

Promoting culture

Hamburg's families and businesses have an established tradition as committed patrons of science and the arts, which has made the Hanseatic city Germany’s capital for charitable foundations. Over the years, Berenberg has supported many initiatives in this field. To mark our 400th anniversary, we established a charitable foundation called Berenberg Bank Stiftung von 1990.

Today cultural diversity and a sense of vitality are important factors influencing both companies and people in their choice of location. In its efforts to make Hamburg an even more attractive destination, the Berenberg Foundation focuses on promoting up-and-coming artists.
