The Würth Foundation was founded by Reinhold and Carmen Würth in 1987. The Würth Foundation focuses on promoting projects in the Hohenlohe region, the home of the Group. It is a foundation with legal capacity under civil law that pursues charitable purposes.
The Würth Foundation promotes projects in the fields of arts and culture, research and science as well as training and education. Social projects related to the integration of refugees and migrants whose refugee status has not yet been determined also receive support. The Hohenlohe Integration Center was established together with the Hohenlohe district for this purpose. The Würth Foundation is also the supporting organization of the Competence Center for Economic Education and the educational institutions Freie Schule Anne-Sophie in Künzelsau and Berlin. Moreover, it serves as the trustee administrating the funds of the Foundation for the Promotion of Reinhold-Würth-Hochschule of Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences in Künzelsau.
