Only commitment can make a difference, be it culturally, socially or ecologically. This applies to every individual and above all to companies like us. That is why we provide support for things that we care about.
FERI is aware of its social responsibility and supports various projects and organisations – especially in Bad Homburg, Germany, where our headquarters are located. Because our home community is particularly close to our hearts.
Every year, the charity cycling organisation Team Rynkeby raises money with their tours to support seriously ill children and their families. In 2021, Team Rynkeby Europe is covering more than 800 km across Denmark. This tour includes not only the Danish mainland, but also the island of Funen, where the idea for this project was born more than 20 years ago. FERI is happy to support this sportive and social initiative and cheers for the team from Bad Homburg.
Since this year we are a cooperation partner of the local tennis club TC Seulberg. In this way, we support the important work of the club in our home region, especially now in Corona times.
The coloring and workbook "Erste Hilfe für Kinder" (First Aid for Children) by the Förderverein der Luftrettungsstation Christoph 2 in Frankfurt am Main e.V. and Verlagsgruppe KIM teaches children of elementary school age in an age-appropriate way how to behave properly in an emergency situation and how to help others. We are pleased that, thanks to our support, the books can be distributed free of charge to schools in the Hochtaunuskreis district.

Like FERI, the Bad Homburg Summer event has been around for over 30 years. Singers, orchestras and bands perform on the outdoor summer stages. Classical music is catered for as well as jazz, rock, pop and folk. There is something for everyone, even entertainment for the little ones. Thanks to the support of partners and sponsors, all concerts can be attended free of charge.
In 2018, FERI was a partner of the concerts by the children’s songwriter Ferri and the cover band Diva.
