Social sponsoring at Sika is mainly organized through the Romuald Burkard Foundation. Its main goals, among others, are to support communities in infrastructure development for social projects, to promote training in construction professions and trades, and to provide emergency aid to disaster-stricken regions.

The Sika Board of Directors established the Romuald Burkard Foundation in 2005 in memory of Dr. Romuald Burkard, the third-generation representative of the Winkler family, which founded Sika.
