The SALEM trust is a legally constituted body. It was established in 2009 and its aim is to sustainably support the non-profit work of SALEM of over 50 years.
In 2009, the year in which Gottfried Müller, founder of SALEM, died, SALEM established the SALEM Trust. In contrast to SALEM International, the capital of the trust is not spent. Instead, each year the revenue and interest from the trust’s capital goes directly into non-profit SALEM projects.
The SALEM Trust has a basic asset which can be increased by additional contributions.
As a donor you could contribute a portion of your assets to the trust’s capital. You can choose how the yield of the SALEM Trust is to be be spent – for general running costs or for a specific need.
The SALEM Trust finances the projects out of the interest, or other revenue, of the endowed assets. This is why the assets you contribute to the trust assure your permanent support for SALEM.
