Foundation's Assets

Donations and donations in kind can support the Wacken Foundation as well as external donations. Donation certificates can be raised on demand for every kind of donation resp. support because the foundation is a non-profit organisation. Donations and donations in kind will be distributed straight for the implementation of the support in the course of the foundation's business year. External donations will be subjected to the asset of the foundation. The annual capable fund for distribution is made up of donations, donations in kind and the benefits of the foundation’s asset, e. g. interest.

In the last years since its creation the foundation grew that much that the administrative work and the day-to-day business of the Wacken Foundation is not manageable just through voluntary activities. For this reason the Wacken Foundation now employs a full-time employee, who takes care of the day-to-day business and the marketing of the foundation. The fulfillment of the foundations’ purpose is still being ensured.
