The MEGA Education Foundation supports innovative educational initiatives in the two areas of opportunity fairness and business literacy/life skills.
It was established by the B&C Private Foundation and the Berndorf Private Foundation, which are thus pooling their activities to promote and expand existing innovative Bildungsprojekte activities in the school and extracurricular sector and to make them available to all educational institutions in Austria.
By promoting economic literacy, the aim is to encourage young people to make reflective decisions, get a grip on their finances, stand on their own two feet and become an active part of the economy.
Education Million and MEGA Academy
The MEGA Education Foundation started its operational activities with its own office in Vienna in September 2019, and in 2021 the “Education Million” was awarded for the second time (together with the cooperation partner ORF III). Within the framework of the specially founded MEGA Academy, the winning projects as well as other selected educational organizations are supported with know-how in the implementation of their growth plans.
Skills provides essential strategic communications advice in building the foundation, as well as media and networking work with various stakeholders.
