Every year a proportion of the Zeppelin group profits flow to its shareholder, the Zeppelin foundation in Friedrichshafen. These financial resources flow only into non-profit charitable or social projects. The Zeppelin foundation is managed by the City of Friedrichshafen. The foundation is dedicated mainly to promoting science and research, the arts and culture, and the welfare of children and young people. It is impossible to move through Friedrichshafen without encountering institutes supported by the foundation at every turn. For example, the culture office, the knowledge workshop, the music school, the adult education college (VHS) and the school museum in Friedrichshafen all receive funding from the foundation – in line with our objective: A better quality of life for all.
