“I’ve always believed that you should never, ever give up and you should always keep fighting even when there’s only a slightest chance.”
Michael Schumacher (2007)

Who we are

The Keep Fighting Foundation is a registered charity that upholds the values of "Keep Fighting" and "Never Give Up" and feels directly inspired by Michael Schumacher in this attitude. The foundation is active with its projects worldwide. The Keep Fighting Foundation continues the charitable work that was always so important to Michael.

Our Inspiration

Michael Schumacher is considered by many to be the best driver in the history of Formula One. His successes on the track are undoubtedly unparalleled; however, he is also recognised for his achievements off the track.

Michael's strong will, his loyalty to those close to him, his honest approach to his goals and beliefs, and his clear willingness to help others have been an inspiration to many people around the world for many years, from which they derive a way of life for themselves

Our Story

Michael Schumacher's family launched the Keep Fighting Foundation at the end of 2016. Just as Michael inspired others over many years, his family felt encouraged by the sympathy and positive energy shown to them after his serious accident at the end of 2013. The Keep Fighting Foundation continues the charitable work that was always so important to Michael in his name.

After Michael's accident, fans had used the hashtags #KeepFighting and #KeepFightingMichael to encourage him and his family. The hashtags quickly spread worldwide. Every day when Michael's wife Corinna drove to visit him in the hospital in Lausanne in the summer of 2014, she noticed a #KeepFighting graffito on one of the motorway bridges. That inspired her to come up with the idea for the Keep Fighting Foundation.



Our Vision

The Keep Fighting Foundation feels inspired by Michael Schumacher and his fans alike.

The Keep Fighting Foundation wants to give the positive energy that Michael Schumacher and his family have received for so many years back to you - the people who sent it out. In this way, we want to do good by supporting charitable projects. The message is to show that giving up is not an option.
