Social commitment is our credo
FUCHS PETROLUB SE is convinced that in addition to generating added value every company must be committed to building society. Therefore, FUCHS PETROLUB SE sponsors commitment in social, charitable non-profit organizations and self-help groups in Mannheim.
Anpfiff ins Leben
Since 2008, FUCHS PETROLUB SE sponsores the initiative „Anpfiff ins Leben“. This social partnership has integrative fostering as a focus. FUCHS PETROLUB SE finances care and training and thus creates a strong and personal bond.
As part of the "Aufstiegshelfer-Initiative", Stefan Fuchs, CEO of FUCHS, is personally taking on the role of an mentor for the third time - in 2019 for the young sportsman Nils Eckstein from SV Waldhof Mannheim. In his role as mentor, Stefan Fuchs is particularly committed to his school development and the preparation for his career entry.
Freiwilligentag der Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar
FUCHS is part of the group of companies that care about the future of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. With our commitment, we set an example! In doing so, we act in a multi-layered manner and serve a wide variety of topics: such as the topics of sustainability, climate change, technology, real estate, business, digitalization or healthcare. The core of our choice of topics lies in social commitment. For example, we have been supporting the Rhine-Neckar region's "Freiwilligentag" (Volunteer Day) for years and contribute to the fulfillment of numerous wishes of associations, kindergartens, schools and other organizations. The entire region is set in motion: Numerous volunteers are working together.
Our latest project: the association "Steckenpferd e.V. Käfertal". The association has set itself the task of supporting children, in particular from financially disadvantaged families. In the course of the volunteers' day on September 19, 2020, the "Urban Gardening Project" was actively supported.
Since its foundation in 1981, the "Gesundheitstreffpunkt" has been involved in many ways in the social and health sector. FUCHS PETROLUB SE primarily supports self-help groups that receive no money from other sources.
FUCHS PETROLUB SE supports the Children's Academy Mannheim, an institution for the qualified promotion of highly gifted primary school children. The academy is supported by the city of Mannheim and the state of Baden-Württemberg. In working groups, workshops and projects, the boys and girls are encouraged to think creatively and do research in addition to the regular school activities.
Kurpfälzisches Kammerorchester - Mannheimer Schule 2.0
In 2010, the "Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester" started a unique project: In order to familiarize pupils with the instruments of an orchestra, the entire orchestra goes directly to the schools. The Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester works in particular with schools in districts with special problems. In this way, the pupils' fears of the threshold can be reduced and interest in the unknown and new can be awakened. FUCHS PETROLUB SE has been supporting the project since 2014.
