Organisation

The WCGE consists of three organisational units, which work together closely:

  • The charitable association was founded in 1998. It is represented by the board and the Presidium fulfills the role of a supervisory board. This organization conducts the operative activities and employs people to this end.
  • The charitable foundation was founded in 2008 with a base financing of approx. 2.5 million Euro. The foundation consists of the management board, the advisory board, which fulfills a supervisory function, and the honorary board of trustees and has the function of guaranteeing the long-term continuity of the Center’s work and financing individual projects.
  • The American Foundation for the Wittenberg Center for Global Ethics Inc., represented by the Board of Directors, has represented the Center’s interests in the USA since 2001 and coordinates opportunities for support from across the Atlantic.

The charitable organisation, the German foundation and the American foundation are all supported by well-known personalities, corporations and organisations..
