 In 1980, for the administration of this foundation, Josef Wagner appointed an independent 5-member foundation council, who had to administer the income from the assets of this company and thus those of the foundation.  The Josef Wagner Foundation ensures the continuation and preservation of the company and makes it possible to provide support for charitable organisations.
