The "Children’s Hospice Löwenherz Foundation" was established to safeguard in the long-term the work for incurably sick children and their families. It is intended as an additional support for the financing of the operational costs. Because at the present time one half of the current costs is financed through donations. Since this revenue cannot easily be calculated for the long run, the risk should be reduced in this way.
The foundation is managed by a five-person board of trustees (board of directors). A foundation council advises the board of directors and controls it. The foundation was created on February 10, 2008, the "Day of Children’s Hospice Work," with a ceremonial establishment act.
With an official notification from February 20, 2008, the Foundation Control of the State of Lower Saxony recognized the foundation.
The revenue office responsible issued the notice of exemption on March 5, 2008.
Also on March 5, 2008, the announcement of the "Children’s Hospice Löwenherz Foundation" was published in the Ministerial Gazette of Lower Saxony No. 10.
Foundation contributions are hoped for so that the new endow ment will grow and the income also increase from year to year. Supporters are asked to add the indication "foundation contribution" on the remittance slip when making deposits.
The "Children's Hospice Löwenherz Foundation" is member in the central association of german foundations (Bundesverband Deutscher Stiftungen).
