Charities and Causes

The Gerry Weber Open supports several charity programs, with beneficiaries including children’s hospitals, special schools and facilities for disabled persons. Two long-time beneficiaries include the Bodelschwinghsche Stiftung Foundation, which houses modern therapy rooms for young cancer patients, and the Wertkries social facility, a workshop employing disabled individuals. 


Since its inaugural tournament in 1993, the Gerry Weber Open has donated more than €900,000 to charitable causes.

In 1995, Gerhard and Ralf Weber donated €125,000 for the construction of a workshop for disabled people in Gütersloh and a hall for therapeutic riding. The ground breaking ceremony at the indoor arena was attended by Jimmy Connors and supported over the years by Andrei Medvedev, Thomas Muster and Nicolas Kiefer.

The Gerry Weber Open received a €10,000 ATP ACES Charity grant in 2012, which was presented to the von Bodelschwinghsche Stiftung Foundation. The children's cancer clinic has four treatment rooms which are supported by Michael Kohlmann, Alexander Waske, Mischa Zverev and Marco Chiudinelli.
