We actively support our region
The association `Offenbach offensiv e.V.’ has been committed for a better business location since 2013. The master plan specially developed for this purpose, is a strategic urban planning instrument that sets the course for a more livable city of tomorrow. Through a clear profiling and the creation of a business-friendly atmosphere, strong future perspectives for the city were designed, which are now gradually being implemented in reality. Our general manager Marc Gatzweiler actively supports this important initiative at board level.
In the context of `Gründerstadt Offenbach´ a program for founding interested parties and young self-employed is built. Our managing director Marc Gatzweiler supports this municipal initiative as honorary mentor and accompanies young entrepreneurs for their first steps into self-determinded working life. Initiator of this program is the KIZ SINNOVA Gesellschaft für soziale Innovationen gGmbH with their cooperation partners Freiwilligenzentrum Offenbach e. V. and Commerzbank.
Appointment to the master plan advisory board of Offenbach
Our general manager has been voted onto the master plan advisory board of the City of Offenbach. As an honorary and party-political council, the advisory board counsels and accompanies the city of Offenbach in the implementation of the master plan.
“We serve” – that is the guiding principle of the worldwide Lions movement, which was founded in the USA. There are now 1.4 million members in 190 countries who are committed to this maxim, and not just in their clubs. “We serve.” means a high level of social commitment to the community.
The Lions Club Offenbach Lederstadt has also been committed to Offenbach and the people of Offenbach for many years. Our Managing Director Marc Gatzweiler has been a committed member of the club since the beginning of 2023.
Cultural commitment also brings local accents to a region that is largely dominated by Frankfurt. Museums and music schools are supported. All these projects are promoted at major events in the city and region of Offenbach, but also at the “Duck Race” on the River Main organized by the Lions Club Offenbach-Lederstadt, which takes place every two years.
Social projects include support for the local hospice movement, whose volunteers receive further training in special courses, and for Offenbach schools in line with the motto “We make Offenbach children strong”. For example, the Lions Club Offenbach Lederstadt has taken over sponsorship of the “Klasse 2000” project at the Wilhelmschule Offenbach school.
The ‘Society of friends of the German Architecture Museum e.V.’ in Frankfurt am Main supports the German Architecture Museum in the realisation of its public tasks both materially and ideally. As an exhibition space and discussion centre, the DAM is dedicated to the many aspects of architecture. As a member of the association, we have for many years been happy to support this building-cultural institution in the performance of its important tasks.
