The Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft advocates for the cultural policy interests of its members. It promotes the optimal conditions for corporate cultural sponsorship and, at the political level, stimulates initiatives to improve the interplay between business and culture. The Kulturkreis was, for example, key in revising the so-called "sponsoring decree" as well as foundation law. It also successfully campaigned to maintain the tax deductibility of membership fees for cultural associations. During the reform of Germany’s non-profit law, it served as an official expert for the German Bundestag. It has also worked to amend legislation around cultural property protection in order to benefit its members.
