Sponsorship & Charity.
Sponsorship has a long standing tradition at Engel & Völkers Castelldefels – Gava.
We support various events and organizations in the field of sports and culture.
The sponsorship engagements reflect our dedication to supporting the community where we live and work.
The Seve Ballesteros Foundation was established in June 2009 as the firm commitment of Seve Ballesteros and his family to contribute to the advancement of science for the benefit of those who are suffering or may in the future suffer a brain tumour.
“José Carreras wanted to make a permanent testimony to science and society of his gratitude for the support and affection he received throughout his illness.”
The José Carreras International Foundation for the Fight against Leukemia was formed on the 14th July 1988 following the recovery of the tenor José Carreras.
Success is a wonderful thing. Sharing that success even more so!
We believe that our business operations are inextricably linked with a duty to act in a socially responsible way. That is why we have founded the Engel & Völkers Charity e.V. to actively support a primary school project in Togo, West Africa. A family contact of our CEO Christian Völkers drew our attention to Africa and specifically to the village of Agbetiko. Aided by the generous support of our employees, Licence Partners and the Engel & Völkers Management Board, we are aiming together to finance the building of a primary school in this village, which will educate more than 200 children on a daily basis in the years to come.
Perceiving the world around us, aside from the finer things in life that Engel & Völkers in particular is so familiar with, we cannot fail to see the hardship and adversity in our world and it is our moral duty to provide help where it is most needed. The living conditions of children living in the so-called “Fourth World” leave no scope for evasion and discussion. Action must be taken and aid provided both quickly and without bureaucracy. It is not just financial interconnectedness that poses a challenge in our age of globalisation but above all social and humanitarian integration.
We cannot allow Africa to become a “forgotten continent”. Our efforts are aimed at giving the children of Agbetiko/Togo the chance to lead a better life in their home country, on their continent, in our world. We have taken the first step and will be supporting this project in Togo in the long term with our established local partners on site. We very much hope that you feel impelled to lend your support to our joint efforts!
