RAHN’s socio-economic impact is assessed annually, goals are defined, actions implemented and the result of such actions are measured and reported in
a transparent manner.

Rahn Foundation

The Rahn Foundation (former Hans Konrad Rahn Foundation) was established in 2003 with starting capital of CHF 250,000 to mark the 70th birthday of Hans Konrad Rahn. The Foundation's organisational capital currently amounts to some CHF 2.6 million.

The Foundation continues the mission of the Rahn relief fund, which for decades supported social projects in the Zurich region and also made donations to help disaster victims in both Switzerland and other countries.

The Foundation receives a share of the cash flow of RAHN AG each year. This is supplemented by generous donations from the Rahn family and other benefactors.
On this basis, our Foundation will be able to continue its support activities in the coming years in the proven way.

In 2023, the Foundation supported various social institutions to the
total sum of CHF 280,960 (2021: CHF 283,000).
