Fund of German Trade and Industry ("Adolf-Hitler-Spende der deutschen Wirtschaft") was a donation from the German employers' association and the "Reichsverband" of German industry, which was established on June 1, 1933, to support the NSDAP. The inspiration to this project came from Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, the chairman of the Reichsverband der deutschen Industrie, and Martin Bormann. According to Speer, entrepreneurs were requested to contribute in appreciation for their profits from the economic boom. Bormann then distributed some of the donations to various party leaders on behalf of Adolf Hitler.

 

At first it was a voluntary donation, but during the following years it became more and more a forced contribution for some concerns. Till 1945 the party collected about 700 million Reichsmark (equivalent to 2 billion 2009 €).

 

These are very rare early contribution certificates and are pre the forced contributions. These will be sent via special delivery and dispatched within two to three working day’s.
