The Hans und Sofie Kneitinger Foundation was set up on the 5th December 1985 by Mrs. Sofie Kneitinger. After her death on the 27.01.1991 the foundation inherited the Johann Kneitinger Brewery (Registered Merchant Company), which it operates to this day.
The foundation pursues exclusively direct charitable purposes by supporting assistance for the aged and for youth. particular, support is given to the St. Leonhard children's home and the city's senior home "Bürgerheim Kumpfmühl" — both in Regensburg.
The foundation's profits come mainly from the brewery operation. Here the foundation has succeeded in anchoring its market position and increase its yield, despite the difficult situation on the brewery market.
