OTTO Work Force is social. We support all kinds of good initiatives. But one thing we’re incredibly proud of is our OTTO Foundation. We use this foundation to contribute to the regions where many of our employees come from. These regions often face all kinds of problems and challenges and we’d like to contribute to the development of these areas and help people in difficult circumstances with support from the OTTO Foundation.

Policy OTTO Foundation


The foundation’s objective is to provide social, humanitarian and economic assistance to people on a minimum income in countries where OTTO operates. We do this by providing individual help, but also by supporting authorities and (social) organisations involved with combating poverty;

Unfortunately, there are also wars going on in some of the areas we operate in. This is absolutely horrendous for people. We do our best to provide victims of war violence with humanitarian and economic aid through the foundation;

The OTTO Foundation was established in 2002. The OTTO Foundation is a socially involved organisation and therefore wants to contribute to society. The idea behind the OTTO Foundation is that the donation per project benefits people or organisations in need. It's also possible for individuals, by way of exception, to receive support within the context of poverty reduction. The basic principle is that we realise our objectives by collecting financial resources and goods, preferably in collaboration with local authorities, organisations and churches. This allows us to realise the most extensive possible social support. This includes support in relation to sports activities, music and/or orphanages.

Geplande activiteiten 2022-2023

We’ll also be supporting one-off projects, based on a selection of requests received by the OTTO Foundation. These can be requests from either organisations or individuals.

The OTTO Foundation donates 100 bicycles to Ukrainian refugees

Smiles on the faces of residents at the OTTO reception centre for Ukrainian refugees near Wrocław Poland. The reception centre took receipt of a shipment of 100 bicycles from the Netherlands last week, which had been made possible by the OTTO Foundation’s fundraising for Ukraine, combined with a warm-hearted donation from our OTTO mobility partner Dekkers Fietsen in Wanssum.

These bicycles have resulted in the centre’s residents now being able to enjoy a great deal more freedom of movement, to go to the shop or to school. The donations we received included cross bikes, children's bikes and large city bikes for the ladies. The donation from the Netherlands also consisted of kitchen accessories, foodstuffs and other household items.
