We help our project partners to realize their ideas for helping others and sustaining our common livelihood.



Foundation Operations Continue: Inquiries and Applications in Electronic Form Only

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to spread and is creating uncertainty for our economy, our society, and each of us as individuals. Even in these challenging times, we want to continue to be there for you as a foundation. At the same time, we also want to play our part in slowing the spread of the virus. For that reason, we have decided to continue our foundation’s operations with our staff largely working in home office. For the time being, we can only accept inquiries and grant applications submitted electronically. These can be sent to us at anfragen(at)sagst.de. General questions can be sent via email to stiftung(at)sagst.de. We will get back to you as promptly as we can. In some cases, it may take us a bit longer than usual to respond. Please excuse the delay.

The board members and staff of the Software AG Foundation

Helmut Habermehl, who has been the Chairman of the Executive Board of Software AG Stiftung - A Foundation (SAGST) since 2011, will, after 20 years of service, step down to retire at the turn of the year 2019/20. As successor to Mr. Habermehl, who is almost 69 years of age, the Board of Trustees has appointed Peter Augustin. He will be responsible in future for the “Human Resources, Communication and Administration” Department.

A blessed Advent, Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

If we look back over the past year, we are filled with gratitude and truly humbled by the very many projects that we have had the opportunity to bring to fruition in 2019. In close cooperation with our partners and applicants, we have succeeded in carrying the healing impetus into the world. This has us looking forward to many further inspiring and effective encounters in the New Year. We wish you all the very best for the year ahead.

The Management and Employees of Software AG Foundation

Taking as a basis the central idea of “not talking about, but with those who grow up in the world of media”, SAGST has obtained support of a special sort for the third edition of its foundation magazine: Schoolchildren who have been able to practice media competence in a quite practical way, supplement the printed publication with their text, film or radio contributions published online.

In this short interview discussing the 2018 financial numbers, CFO Markus Ziener discusses challenges, performance, the foundation’s investment strategy, and the importance of sustainability for asset management.
