Volkswagen Foundation

We develop initiatives of social and educational impact with resources coming from the income of a fund constituted by the German automaker in 1979. In addition, we have technically supported some social responsibility actions by Volkswagen.

We share the vocation of moving people. Movements that reduce distances and generate change, transforming potential into reality.

Together with technical partners, we apply and spread knowledge able to combine theory and practice. This results in effective changes on two fronts: education and social development.
