The Heinrich Böll Foundation (Heinrich Boll Stiftung) "is a non-profit organization striving to promote democracy, civil society, human rights, international understanding and a healthy environment internationally.

  • [They] are affiliated with the German Green Party. Headquartered in Berlin, we have 25 offices worldwide. The Washington D.C. office of the Böll Foundation was created in 1998 to support our international efforts. Today, the Heinrich Böll Foundation cooperates worldwide, with over 200 partner organizations in more than 60 countries." [1]

National Endowment for Democracy (NED) historian David Lowe writes that Stiftungen (like the Heinrich Böll Foundation) provided an “important model for democracy assistance” which helped catalyse the creation of the US’s own democracy promoting organ, the NED. [2]
