On 1 July 2023, the new foundation law in Sections 80 et seq. BGB came into force.
MÜNCH. has already assisted in the establishment of the first foundations under the new law in Berlin in 2023 and successfully achieved their state recognition as well as their tax benefits under tax law due to their non-profit status.

In April 2023, even before the foundation law reform came into force, MÜNCH. together with the Weberbank Foundation compared the new regulations with the previous law on the occasion of Berlin Foundation Week and presented the advantages of the new foundation law.

Private individuals, families and organisations are increasingly placing greater importance to the transition to a more sustainable world. Philanthropic commitment and the role of foundations in particular form an important basis for social and ecological change.

However, a foundation designed for perpetuity cannot always be prepared for every scenario. In the light of past challenges, such as the low interest rate policy and later inflation, as well as fundamental changes in the way we live and work, it is important that foundations are prepared for every scenario.
