ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius
The Foundation was founded in 1971 by Gerd Bucerius, a publisher of the
distinguished weekly Die ZEIT and philanthropic German pioneer. The
ZEIT-Stiftung, one of the largest foundations in Germany, provides support
in the areas of higher education, art and culture. Central to its mission
is the commitment to invigorate civil society in Germany and Europe and to
promote innovative trans-Atlantic programs, exchanges, and perspectives.
The Foundation established the first private law school in Germany, the
Hamburg-based Bucerius Law School in 2000, and one of Germany’s finest art
galleries, the Bucerius Kunst Forum, in 2002.
Since 2000, the ZEIT-Stiftung has awarded – since 2004 in collaboration
with the Norwegian Institusjonen Fritt Ord, Oslo – the Gerd Bucerius Prize
“Free Press of Eastern Europe” to journalists actively involved in the
promotion of a free press, the freedom of speech, and a liberal civil
society in Eastern European countries.
Members of the ZEIT-StiftungÃs Board of Trustees include the former German
chancellor Helmut Schmidt, the former Federal President Roman Herzog, and
the former first lady Christina Rau.
