Ulf Mann contributed his entire estate to the Foundation.
Originally, the founding group laid down in the statutes that he be entitled to a stipend (BAT 1a level, according to the pay scale for civil servants). He never made use of this entitlement, however, and in 2014 he waived it entirely. The statutes now specify only that Foundation assets can be used to provide for him in an appropriate way if it becomes necessary.
Ulf Mann was involved in the establishment of the Foundation and was a member of the first Board of Trustees (as a representative of two working groups), but resigned after six months. He remained a member of the Africa working group until 1996, but then withdrew entirely from serving the Foundation. However, he is still associated with the Foundation, for one thing because he still lives in the apartment building he donated to it.
