Annual Review
The Annual Review looks back at some of the results and learning that came out of the Foundation’s projects over the past year.

2021: Global Citizenship

In 2021, the Foundation revised its strategy and included an overall ambition of global citizenship. The Foundation wants to take part in and influence the global agenda on water, climate and social issues and encourages the Grundfos Group companies in living the values of the founder through supporting local community projects. Finally, improved synergies between the Foundation’s philanthropic programme areas will increase our global engagement.

2020: The year of the pandemic

In a swift blow, the global COVID-19 pandemic changed our reality and created new needs and challenges which needed to be addressed quickly and in a flexible way. The pandemic showed us how vulnerable the world is, and how important responsibility, dialogue and co-operation are in maintaining stability and sustainable development in society.

In the 2020 Annual Review, you will find a number of stories to illustrate how the Foundation’s philanthropic activities sought to mitigate both local and global consequences of the pandemic.


In the 2019 issue, you can dive into a number of interesting projects creating room for more people in communities and the labour market. Some of our large investments in research were also beginning to show results, and we expanded our activities within teaching and learning in STEM. In 2019, after three years of hard work, we were able to inaugurate the last waterwork in Nyarugusu Refugee Camp and celebrate that over 200,000 people in- and outside the camp were granted access to clean drinking water.
