Become a partner, patron or donor

With your donation, vision becomes reality – help us to turn the educational campus of the European School Templin into a reality. Together we will bring young people from all over Europe together. Here you can find out how to support our endeavours.

With your commitment, you are actively contributing to an effectively functioning European civil society.
In addition, you are driving educational innovation forward and saving a remarkable listed building ensemble. The total costs for the renovation of the listed buildings and the new buildings to be financed by private donations and public funding amount to around €100 million – including the expected increase in construction costs.
We are already receiving a great deal of support from the political arena – from the city of Templin and its residents, the municipality, the state of Brandenburg and the federal government. Now your help is required. We need your support on the path to opening est – right away! Now is your chance to participate in a unique project at a wonderful location. For education. For Brandenburg. For Europe. For the future of young people.

The following options are available for you to participate:

How to become a partner

We are looking for visionary people with considerable assets who understand the potential of our project and would like to contribute to the success of an important European integration and education project. At a time when it is urgent to take steps for European unification, when countermovements are on the rise, we would like to establish est, the first European School in eastern Germany, which we also consider a bridge between Western and Eastern European countries.

Join us with €5 million and make this educational opportunity possible for the Europeans of tomorrow! If you are interested, please contact us. We would be pleased to work out a completely individual solution that is personally suitable for you.
