FUCHS Sponsorship Award
FUCHS believes that every company carries a great deal of social responsibility alongside its responsibility as a business. Active involvement in tackling a wide range of social challenges is firmly anchored in our corporate culture and has a long tradition. In line with this principle and under the motto "Helping People", FUCHS has supported exemplary initiatives and projects in Mannheim's social establishments with the sponsorship award since 2000.
The sponsorship award, under the patronage of the mayor of Mannheim Dr. Peter Kurz, is awarded on an annual basis. The total prize fund of €50,000 is distributed to an average of between seven and fifteen projects. The contributions are mainly to be used to support creative social projects.
Charitable organizations based in Mannheim and complying with our sponsorship rules can apply for the award. The prize winners will be selected from all submitted applications together with the Work and Social department of the City of Mannheim and subsequently awarded in an official ceremony. Last year's ceremony took place on October 13, 2017. More information can be found in this year's press release.
