Schöpflin Stiftung

The Schoepflin Foundation is an independent and non-profit foundation based in Lörrach, Germany. Besides running our own in-house projects and programs we also provide grants to external initiatives and organizations. In our in-house facilities in Lörrach, we use innovative solutions and formats to empower children and young people; we offer sociopolitical (thought) impetus; and we test out forms of participation. As a supra-regional funding foundation, we use social venture capital to facilitate experiments and ensure their dissemination in civil society.


We invest in courageous people and bold ideas – for critical awareness, a vibrant democracy and a diverse society. Now and in the future.
