The WISY Foundation

Norbert Winkler, the founder of WISY AG, set up the WISY Foundation in 2009 for the following purpose:

To promote science, research and environmental protection, with particular focus on rainwater harvesting and the safeguarding of water resources, both nationally and internationally.

Projects and cooperative partnerships with non-profit organizations are helping us to achieve this goal. Recently, for example, we were able to lend support to a project for developing ceramic water filters in Uganda. These are designed to filter bacteria and suspended matter out of rainwater so that it is fit to drink.

The WISY Foundation is the principle shareholder in WISY AG and its activities are financed by the company. The WISY Foundation is therefore empowered to make an important contribution to the protection and wise use of valuable water resources.

Cooperative partnerships and donations which benefit the purpose of the foundation are welcome and are deductible for tax purposes (Germany).

The members of the voluntary board of directors of the WISY Foundation are as follows:

Barbara Lofink (chairwoman)
Tax advisor and managing director of RK Treuhand GmbH
