|What is the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation?
The Checkpoint Charlie Foundation is a non-profit foundation established in 1994 by the Berlin House of Representatives. It is a legal public foundation incorporated under the laws of the State of Berlin. It pursues exclusively non-profit, non-partisan goals. Donations to the foundation are tax deductable under German law.
What purpose does the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation serve?
The purpose of the Foundation is to foster German-American relations, with special consideration for the role of the USA in Berlin from 1945-1994. Since 1994, the Foundation has planned and realized over 600 German-American projects, which were supported with approximately 1.8 Million Euros. Furthermore, the Foundation coordinates the largest teacher exchange program in the country between the USA and Germany (STEP), and oversees all of the non-state run programs in Berlin with its partner city Los Angeles.
