More than 150 people now live in the Fuggerei, for 88 cents annual cold rent and three prayers a day. There are financially needy families, single people and couples from Augsburg who, despite their work, pension or social benefits, are not able to compete in the »ordinary« housing market. In the Fuggerei they will find a way out of worries and fear of the future. The affordable and safe home in the Fuggerei means helping people to help themselves: it enables a self-determined life in dignity and creates new perspectives.
The Fuggerei is financed by an independent foundation with its own assets, which may only be used for the purpose of the foundation. For centuries, the foundation's own Forestry is the most important part of the foundation's assets. Further income comes from the entrance fees of the Fuggerei and – more and more important – from donations. According to the specification of the founder, the fuggerei »forever and ever« should be there for the needy people of Augsburg. Therefore, any financial support for their maintenance and operation is welcome. With the Fuggerei Förderstiftung under the roof of the House of the founders of the Augsburger Stadtsparkasse, this will be even easier.
The Fuggerei is as urgently needed today as it was 500 years ago. More and more people can no longer afford to live in the city and do not know where to go. Help Fuggerei to continue to offer a home for its fellow citizens in the future, where they can live with dignity and self-determination. At the same time, they support the goal of »Fuggerei NEXT500« to strengthen the idea of Fuggerei and to attract donators and sponsors for more institutions of Fuggerei.
