In December 2010, the C.E.O. and single owner of the company Baumhouse GmbH founded together with his wife, the non-profit foundation Ruth and Helmut Middeldorf.

In the future, a significant percentage of the Baumhouse GmbH profits will be every year donated to this foundation.

The Ruth and Helmut Middeldorf foundation addresses to children, teens and young people in Lower Saxony and Bremen with a focus in the city of Worpswede.

On our website you will find information about our planned and future projects. The site will be constantly updated.

You can therefore directly support our foundation, while purchasing Birkenstock shoes at Baumhouse GmbH.

We would be pleased with the recommendation of our company to your relatives, friends, acquaintances and work colleagues - even in the interest of the projects the foundation supports.
