About the supporters

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 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.


As a leader in information technology, SAP recognizes its responsibility to the communities in which we live and operate. SAP’s purpose is to help the world run better and improve people's lives with sustainability at the core. In line with our purpose, SAP's objective is to create positive economic, environmental, and social impact within planetary boundaries with special focus on climate action, circular economy, social responsibility, and holistic steering and reporting.

Driving long-term social impact

Innovation and education belong to all of us. Yet, with the pandemic, rapid climate change, and other mounting inequalities, equitable access to opportunities does not exist. The SAP Corporate Social Responsibility team is working toward ensuring an inclusive recovery and equal opportunities for all.

To power equitable access to economic opportunity, education and employment, and a circular economy, the SAP Corporate Social Responsibility (SAP CSR) team focuses on accelerating social business, building future skills, and collaborating for sustainability. Our goal is to ensure everyone can take part in and benefit from today’s digital world.

Accelerating social business

Social enterprises are the catalysts for positive change, serving the world’s most vulnerable people and ecosystems. For more than a decade, SAP CSR has invested in the growth of this sector. We provide financial and nonfinancial support, as well as market access and development, to social businesses to accelerate their ability to drive sustainable global impact.

Building future skills

SAP’s education initiatives help people obtain the relevant twenty-first century skills to thrive and secure decent, meaningful work – including entrepreneurial pursuits – in a digital world. In 2021, our digital skills and coding programs trained more than 119,000 teachers and engaged 3.5 million young people across more than 70 countries.

Collaborating for sustainability

94% of SAP employees acknowledge the importance of pursuing purpose and sustainability. SAP CSR empowers them to take action on causes they care about. In 2021, more than 20,000 SAP employees engaged in volunteerism and learning experiences promoting SAP’s commitment to create positive economic, social, and environmental impact within planetary boundaries. Collectively, they dedicated more than 107,000 volunteer hours across the globe.
