The BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt applies venture philanthropy principles to invest in a global portfolio of impact networks and intermediaries.

Behind these organizations stand Responsible Leaders from the Foundation’s global network. Through their social engagement, they move forward social, organizational or even structural changes in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda. We want to foster this engagement.

In addition to its global portfolio, the Foundation also supports the creation of venture philanthropy portfolios in the key regions where it is active. Together with local Responsible Leaders and their networks, the Foundation selects social organizations that are in an early stage of development but already show a high potential for growth.

This way, we significantly leverage the impact of these organizations. In addition, we inspire Responsible Leaders in these regions to also apply venture philanthropy principles – and spread this effective philanthropic approach worldwide.
