Visitors from all over the world are enthusiastic about the Francke Foundations - tourists marvel at the Cabinet of Artifacts and Natural Curiosities, scientists explore its sources, families make use of the cultural and educational offers, alumni take their Golden Abitur in the renovated Latina. Many important projects, especially in the socio-cultural field, would be inconceivable without the generous support of private friends of the foundations. The entire history of the foundations has been marked by heartfelt private commitment; both their foundation in 1698 and the reconstruction from 1991 onwards have been substantially promoted. That is why our appeal remains the same: Support the work of the Francke Foundations! Help us to preserve this unique cultural monument, to preserve and develop the treasures of the foundations for future generations and to implement innovative ideas in education and social areas in the spirit of the founder August Hermann Francke.
Association of Friends of Francke Foundations
The most reliable way to promote the work of the foundations is to become a member of the Association of Friends of Francke Foundations for a moderate annual fee. Since its foundation in 1990, the Association of Friends has been a constant and reliable companion to the work of the foundations. Thanks to its large membership of over one thousand people and its high willingness to donate, it has been able to make significant contributions to the structural restoration of the foundations, to the preservation of the valuable historical collections and to the promotion of the foundation's life. Many social projects in the family floor, in the Krokoseum and in the botanical garden, but also in the scientific field could not be realised without the help of the Association of Friends. Help the Francke Foundations in the Association of Friends and through your donations!
