The foundation founder, who is Wolfgang Schüler, has been supporting social projects for many years. He started his professional career as a mechanical engineer and ended it as a successful entrepreneur.
After the sale of his company, he established the Wolfgang Schüler Stiftung, at the end of 2008.
His declared aim is, even after having retired, to continue his social commitment. His idea is to support needy children and young people. As a native Brandenburger, he wants to focus on this region, but as a result of his extensive travelling the desire to help in developing countries emerged.
