Example text

Churchill, London The Future of Philanthropic Foundations Ciba Foundatjon Copyright 0 1975 Ciba Foundation Foundations and the State in the Federal Republic of Germany: some comments* G. GAMBKE Secretary-General, Stiftiing Volkswagenwerk, Hannover, Federal Republic of Germany Before the First World War about a hundred thousand foundations, with assets totalling 3800 million Goldmarks, were active in Germany. Two periods of inflation and the restrictions imposed by the totalitarian rule of National Socialism then reduced the number and assets of foundations by over 90 per cent.

We need to exercise continuous self-criticism and be alert to react to public opinion as expressed by the scientist-consumer, by editors and by reviewers. In particular, we need advice from the exceptional wealth of opinion and experience represented at this symposium. Discussion Todd: The Ciba Foundation is perhaps unusual among foundations in that one specific type of activity has dominated it from the start. Its real contribution is its series of symposia. Irrespective of the degree of active communication and cooperation, I think that the Ciba Foundation must remain successful because its symposia complement the activities of the larger foundations (and depend to some extent on their activities).

Van Leer: If the Founder has the right to appoint the trustees, and if the statutes cannot be changed without his permission, then I would say, as devil’s advocate, that it is not a foundation, but a government organization under another name. Gambke: During the twelve years of its existence the Stiftung Volkswagenwerk has taken its decisions independently. The trustees felt independent. Indeed, the statutes can only be changed by agreement between the trustees and the two governments (Bund and Land).
