The UEM foundation was established in 2004 to assure that important projects can be supported in the long run.
Whoever gives a donation for the foundation can be sure that his or her money helps permanently, because only the interest will be given to the projects, not the capital stock itself.
In 2004 the initial capital was € 200,000. It has grown to € 7.2 million at the end of 2016. And with every Euro more the annually interests grow as well.
