This commitment focuses on empowering people to lead an independent life in self-determination.


Foundation Purpose

Objective

With its activities, the Hilti Foundation strives to promote sustainability and strengthen the fundamental qualities of a modern society. The Foundation uses its projects to offer disadvantaged people the opportunity to independently improve their situation in life and to develop self-confidence.

In doing so, the Foundation embraces the integration of entrepreneurial initiatives that can be multiplied and that can offer measureable results. The Foundation is aware that this is the only way to contribute to sustainable development.

Vision

The Hilti Foundation helps disadvantaged people to sustainably improve their lives and provides “help for self-help”.

Mission

Together with the Hilti family, the Hilti Group and the entire Hilti team, we want to make an enthusiastic, significant and sustainable social contribution toward successful results of our projects and toward “building a better future”.
