Foundation Operations during Corona: Please submit Inquiries and Applications electronically

As a grant-making foundation, we want to continue to be there for you even during the current exceptional circumstances. 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. In this context, we are relying on you for your cooperation and kindly ask you to submit your inquiries and grant applications electronically to anfragen(at)sagst.de. If this is not possible, you can of course continue to send documents to us per post. We are looking forward to remaining in contact with you. As always, you can send your general inquiries to stiftung(at)sagst.de. We will get back to you as promptly as we can; in some exceptional cases, it may take us a bit longer than usual to respond. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

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.

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.
