Marianne Blumenbecker Stiftung signet

Aiding women’s causes in Beckum and preserving the town’s cultural heritage is of particular concern for the founder, Marianne Blumenbecker. Motivated by her own life experience, she takes a special interest in supporting women who are struggling to balance a job and family life.

A non-profit foundation, the Marianne Blumenbecker Foundation has capital funds of more than €1 million (as at 2009), resulting in donations to charity totalling €50,000 to €60,000 each year. It is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
