A central aspect of the corporate culture at the USU Group concerns social responsibility in society. We have been supporting various charitable, non-profit and cultural institutions, organizations and projects for many years. These include the Sabine Dörges Foundation for children and youth suffering from cancer, to which the employees from USU, in particular, are actively committed with their own donations.
Every two years a golf tournament of a special kind is held over a few days under the banner "Birdies for Help". All donations and excess funds are contributed in full to selected children and youth projects in the area, such as the "Jugendhilfe aktiv" (Active Youth Support Group) in Möglingen, or the Karlshöhe Children and Youth Support Group in Ludwigsburg.
We also support art and culture in the region, including, on the one hand, the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele. On the other, we have been making our company premises available for around 25 years now for exhibitions of local artists.
And last but not least, sports aid is something we are also committed to. This covers Board of Trustees donations to the Deutsche Sporthilfe (German Sports Aid) and, for example, direct financial support to the hurdler Felix Franz.
