Donate a sum to an existing foundation. Consider one of our foundations in your will or set up your own foundation under the umbrella of the EMS.
What we do
We have set up four foundations under the umbrella of the EMS:
- EMS Foundation Mission in Partnership: As a donor you support the churches of the EMS in their projects in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
- Ursula Helene Foundation: education for girls in Africa.
- Foundation of the Basel Mission German Branch: Income is invested above all in the missionary work of churches in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
- Schneller Foundation – Education for Peace: You support Christian peace education at the Schneller Schools in the Middle East.
Each of our foundations is supervised by an executive board and a board of trustees or a foundation council. The bodies bear the responsibility for investing funds profitably and ensure that the revenue benefits the purpose defined in the articles of the foundation.
