If you are thinking about how to leave your estate (or part of it) in your will, why not consider making a donation to the foundation. If you set up a trust (Treuhandstiftung) as a special fund within the SONNENFELD FOUNDATION, you can build a fitting memorial to your name by having it associated with charitable ends.

You can find more information in the Trust section.

The foundation’s management will be glad to help you with any questions you might have on this subject.
