#VoithCares funding program continues

The #VoithCares program was launched this fiscal year together with the Hanns Voith Foundation. Through the program, Voith financially supports the volunteer work of employees throughout the world.

A total of €50,000 euros has been donated to nonprofits. For the next fiscal year, employee activities are being sought to receive funding.

Social responsibility is more than just a buzzword for Voith: the company directly funds education and training, science and research, and social, sports, and cultural activities worldwide. Through active employee nominations, 50 organizations and their measures were selected and given financial support. Each of 26 projects in Europe and Africa received €1,000. Among others, the Crailsheim child protection association, the Heidenheim wind orchestra, and an education initiative for children in Ghana were supported. Nine projects from nonprofit organizations in North America, nine in Asia and six projects in South America also received funding. The workforce response was overwhelming – almost 100 applications were received.

Due to its huge success, the initiative is now continuing for another round. Voith is inviting employees at all of its locations throughout the world to submit nonprofit projects.

“Social responsibility is important to us at Voith Paper, and I am proud of the exceptional response and commitment of our employees to the #VoithCares program,” says Andreas Endters, President & CEO, Voith Paper. “In the upcoming fiscal year, we will support additional social projects worldwide to have a positive impact on education, social issues, and culture. Our employees are the key to our success.”
