The Rudolf Augstein Foundation
The non-profit Rudolf Augstein Foundation defines itself as part of civil society. It identifies with Rudolf Augstein, the founder of German news magazine DER SPIEGEL, and his devotion to quality journalism, his support of the arts, and his dedication to underprivileged children and youths. Rudolf Augstein, above all, stands for freedom of the press and critical journalism. His slogan “Say what is“ should be an inspiration and guide to future generations. In order to attain this goal the foundation has an extra line of funding for journalists.
