University of Bremen: Foundation of the University of Bremen awarded

“The seal is a nice confirmation of our work. It shows that people who want to get involved in science are in good hands at the University of Bremen, ”says Mrs.ke Meyer, Chancellor and CEO of the Foundation. “Further donors are very welcome!”

The award is valid for three years and is awarded by the Federal Association of German Foundations. It was awarded during the Digital German Foundation Day on June 8, 2021. An independent allocation committee first checks compliance with strict allocation criteria and awards the seal of quality to trustees who have proven their competence in dealing with the administration of trust foundations in practice. The principles of good management of trust foundations describe in detail the test criteria for awarding a seal. The seal of quality offers founders guidance in the selection of a suitable trustee and at the same time protects against dubious business practices.
