The Global Alliance of Siemens Foundations is based on responsible corporate governance and Siemens values. The alliance shares the common goal to empower and engage people to shape their own lives and contribute to social development. The foundations pursue an integrative approach to achieve synergies in their educational, social and cultural initiatives at both the local and international level.

There are currently seven Siemens corporate foundations in Argentina, Brazil, France, Colombia, Denmark, Germany and the United States. The seven independent foundations cooperate in joint projects.
