How to Contribute to the Endowment Funds

Get involved

The Caritas Foundation Austria provides a variety of options for people who want to get involved in philanthropy. We offer the most suitable solution for every supporter, from classic donations to tailor-made personal endowment contributions. Alongside cash contributions, real estate such as condominiums or apartment buildings represent an attractive alternative for delivering sustainable help. As a supporter, you decide whether your funds are managed by your own private bank, an asset manager, or the Caritas Foundation Austria. There are many ways to get involved:

Asset-Preserving Contribution

The income stream benefits a specified project while your assets remain intact.

Asset-Consuming Contribution

You agree your capital to be used up over a specified period, e.g. 10 years.

Loan to the Foundation

While being similar to an asset-preserving contribution, the loan allows you to reclaim your assets. In that case, your tax benefit would no longer exist.

Real Estate

You bring in an apartment building into the Caritas Foundation Austria. The Foundation is committed to maintaining your property. The rental income alone may benefit a specific social project.

An involvement in the Caritas Foundation Austria is considered meaningful starting from a contribution of EUR 100,000. This minimum amount can guarantee long-term support. Thereby, we can ensure sustainable aid programmes and offer you the opportunity to have a personal say.
