Carl-Otto Thorwart and Kerstin J. Thorwart founded the THORWART-JESKA-FOUNDATION on December 29, 2009. The foundation is dedicated to the promotion of various areas. Science and research as well as the support of education, upbringing and health are part of this, as well as the support of university and professional education in the field of legal professions.

Sports, art and culture are further important areas of the foundation.
Kerstin J. Thorwart is a founder and is personally involved in all projects. She was honored by the UN in New York as a "Global Woman in Action" for her work in Sri Lanka.

THORWART-JESKA-FOUNDATION supports immunotherapy research against coronaviruses
Especially for patients whose immune system is already weakened by immunosuppressive therapy or due to a (cancer) disease itself, the threat posed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus represents an additional severe danger. In the Medical Clinic 5 - Hematology and Internal Oncology (Director: Prof. Dr. Andreas Mackensen) of the University Clinic of Erlangen, scientists are therefore currently investigating at maximum speed how patients from this high-risk group can be effectively helped with the aid of cell therapy.
The THORWART-JESKA-FOUNDATION focuses on four areas. Projects and personalities from " Art and Culture" and "Education and Training" as well as "Science and Research" and "Youth and Sports" are supported.
In cooperation with the THORWART-JESKA-FOUNDATION, Gabriele Hussenether, owner of the cooking school "MOKO", would like to inspire students between the ages of 9 and 14 to eat a balanced diet. By cooking together, she imparts nutritional knowledge and promotes the health of the students in the long term. Initially, cooking takes place in the video, but if the situation allows, there is cooking in both schools and at MOKO itself.
