In 2009 the team behind Battle of the Year founded the Battle of the Year e.V. a nonprofit organization focused on supporting cultural projects related to BOTY and urban culture more in general. In just a few years Battle of the Year e.V. has funded several projects - including the BOTY Theatre Night in Germany and BOTY events in Sénegal and Nigeria - by working closely with foundations, institutes for culture and public local bodies. Battle of the Year e.V. operates in the effort to spread knowledge, skills and values related to the Hip Hop culture, support cultural exchange in specific regions - like Africa and Latin America - and build bridges between urban culture and contemporary arts.
