What does the Krzyżowa Foundation do?

The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe is a place where young people from Europe can discover and develop their own skills and abilities. Every year, more than 10,000 people meet here to debate values ​​such as responsibility, democracy and solidarity.

Why does the Krzyżowa Foundation need additional funds? 

1. The Krzyżowa Foundation runs one of Europe's largest International Youth Meeting Center, located in a historic palace complex - a place historically important for Polish-German reconciliation and European understanding. The buildings of the Foundation are entered in the register of monuments and their total area is 10,623 m². The area of ​​the foundation covers about 4 hectares. Maintaining such an extensive area and all the buildings costs the foundation over PLN 2 million a year.

2. As a public benefit organization, the Foundation wants as many people as possible to participate in its educational projects. That is why it offers its services on the most favorable terms possible for the participants.

3. The Krzyżowa Foundation is one of the few organizations with a Polish-German character and a European mission. Its greatest strengths are the skills of its employees and the network of people supporting civil society, as well as the buildings and green spaces at its disposal and its historical heritage. However, the foundation does not have its own endowment capital.

We are still eager to meet new schools that would like to organize international youth exchanges with us.

We also need supporters who would like to include the Krzyżowa Foundation in their activities as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
