The 6th Saarland Foundation Day is expected to take place in the fall of 2021.


The StiftungsForumSaar was established in 2011 and has since been committed to promoting networking and cooperation among Saarland's foundations. The ASKO Europa-Stiftung, Stiftung ME Saar, SHS Foundation and Stiftung Bürgerengagement Saar foundations have developed a wide range of initiatives in cooperation with three financial institutions from Saarland, i.e. Sparkasse Saarbrücken, Bank1Saar and SaarLB.

The primary objective of the association is to offer foundations in the Saarland a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience as well as for networking and cooperation, and in this way to provide up-to-date information, be it on the commitments of other foundations or on tax and legal framework conditions and issues. Against this background, the "Saarland Foundation Day" was initiated, which has been held every 2 years since 2011. 

The 5th Saarland Foundation Day took place on October 31, 2019 in the conference building of Saarländischer Rundfunk.

Topics were:

  •     Investment potential for foundations in times of low interest rates.
  •     Concrete foundation issues for annual accounting
  •     Digitalization as an opportunity for small and medium-sized foundations.
