Management Board

The Management Board is responsible for business operations and for Sparkassenstiftung’s public image. Together with its appointed Managing Director, the Management Board reports to the Board of Trustees at regular meetings. Here it brings the Board of Trustees up to date with the foundation's work and the latest developments in the various projects.

One of the Management Board’s main tasks is managing the foundation's assets. This includes specifying how resources are to be spent and allocating specific volumes of funding to various fields of activity. Furthermore, it is incumbent on the Management Board to decide whether or not to accept new foundation members and recruit new staff members.
