The A.P. Møller Relief Foundation

Moller Group – to support charitable or non-profit purposes, which the foundation board considers appropriate and qualified for support.

The Fund was established in 2005. Its trust funds comprise 10% of the shares in Danmarks Skibskredit A/S (Danish Ship Finance Ltd.), and the dividend comprises the main income of the Fund.

The Danish Ministry of Business and Growth
The main mission of the Danish Ministry of Business and Growth is to create future-oriented conditions for growth for citizens and companies in an increasingly globalized world. Its vision is to achieve the best conditions for growth in Europe in order to make Denmark an attractive place to live, work and run a company.

The Hempel Foundation
The Hempel Foundation is a commercial foundation, and the owner of the Hempel Group. Its primary purpose is to provide and maintain a solid economic base for the Hempel Group. Hempel is not listed on the stock exchange, and accordingly has no easy way to raise new capital. The Hempel Foundation therefore has to accumulate a certain level of capital as required to provide maximum assurance that at all times we will be able to place the Hempel Group’s operation and expansion on a sound commercial and economic footing. The Foundation’s secondary purpose is a social and charitable one: to provide assistance for cultural, social, humanitarian, scientific and artistic purposes, with a special focus on education for children in need and research in environmentally sustainable technologies in the coating industry.

The Lauritzen Foundation
The Lauritzen Foundation aims at supporting projects with a social purpose and Danish business activities.  It promotes and develops Danish shipping and Danish enterprise. It supports projects in shipping, agriculture, the arts, trade and industry. It funds Nordic and to some extent international humanitarian work. In particular, the Foundation is intended to support education and training of the young in Denmark and abroad and to work for “the best possible arrangement of workplaces to promote job satisfaction”.
