Two organizations have been formed to support the Julius Kühn Institute. The GFF supports the Julius Kühn Institute as a whole, while another organization is historically associated with the Institute of Grapevine Breeding.
The organizations, which are financed by membership fees and donations, pursue exclusively non-profit purposes. They aim to support the JKI materially and non-materially in its research, as well as to promote young scientists and scientific exchange of experience at JKI.
The more detailed descriptions of their mission and activities are published on the German website (Deutsch).
