The Schöck-Familien-Stiftung

"Future through education" is our motto.

The Schöck-Familien-Stiftung gemeinnützige GmbH was founded in 2012 on the initiative of Sabine Schöck and has since supported initiatives in the field of sustainable development cooperation, currently mainly in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Uganda and Ethiopia. 

With a view to helping socially disadvantaged people, the foundation also supports development projects in the area surrounding the company’s headquarters in Baden-Baden. 

It primarily aims to support other charitable organisations in successfully setting up and implementing their projects. 

It is important to the family to give disadvantaged people the chance to lead a self-determined life through personalised support, good education and training.

Creating this basis enables open exchange between peoples and cultures and a sustainable approach to nature and the environment in the long term.

The Schöck Family Foundation is already the Schöck family’s second charitable organisation. The first, the Eberhard Schöck Foundation (ESST), was set up by the founder of Schöck AG, Eberhard Schöck, back in 1992. He and his wife Sabine transferred a large proportion of their shares in Schöck AG to the foundations. This made them the largest shareholders in the company. A substantial part of the dividends earned by Schöck employees is therefore donated to charitable causes.

The family members carry out their activities as advisory board members on an honorary basis.
