SAP Solidarity Fund e.V.
"Solidarity" means standing up for one another in a community. Shaken by the attacks of September 11, 2001, SAP employees immediately founded the SAP Solidarity Fund. They wanted to create an instrument that would support people in need. The SAP Solidarity Fund is supported by donations from SAP employees and people close to SAP. To this day, the fund is active where help is needed most. It is also important to the Solidarity Fund to draw attention to emergency situations or disasters that have less media visibility but are no less distressing or life-threatening for the people they affect.
Through the SAP Solidarity Fund, help from SAP employees reaches people who cannot help themselves - whether they are victims of the tsunami in Southeast Asia, those affected by the famine in Niger, or those left homeless after the earthquake in Kashmir, Pakistan. The goal of the SAP Solidarity Fund is to help the victims of such disasters on their way to a new normal by implementing concrete projects through the donations. This aspect is particularly important to the Fund: all monetary donations must benefit specific, self-contained, and verifiable projects. With fixed partners such as Habitat for Humanity, the German Red Cross, or UNICEF, donations are therefore mainly used for reconstruction or disaster prevention. To date, the Fund has been able to pass on more than four million Euros to those affected by humanitarian disasters through more than 45 fundraising campaigns.
Through solidarityfund.org, it is now possible to support local associations and organizations in Germany, as well - whether after natural disasters or in humanitarian emergencies, and both quickly and unbureaucratically.
