Wings of Help Foundation in Place
Humanitarian aid organization Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen e.V./Wings of Help re-establishes itself in the financial sector with charitable foundation
Solid, serious, transparent – with these guiding principles, which have been in force for 17 years, the humanitarian aid organization Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen e.V./Wings of Help is also repositioning itself in the financial sector: With the foundation of the non-profit "Wings of Help Foundation", the organization is creating an additional opportunity to make even more targeted use of financial contributions in addition to the foundation as a registered association. The new foundation thus serves individual ad hoc projects as well as relief missions that require longer planning. The foundation certificate has now been handed over by the Taunussparkasse bank in Bad Homburg to the Executive Committee of Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen e.V./Wings of Help.
"Foundations usually underline long-term commitments. They document great financial security and soundness of the individual tasks through the contribution of the foundation capital - which, incidentally, can only be used partially for projects. With the help of the new foundation, we project our challenges into the future and underpin our donors and supporters at home and abroad: Those who promote Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen/Wings of Help can be sure that their commitment will continue to reach people in need of help directly and sustainably for years to come," said Frank Franke, Managing Director of the organization based at Frankfurt Airport.
