The Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation (German: Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung) is a major German philanthropic foundation, created by and named in honour of Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, former owner and head of the Krupp company, once the largest company in Europe.

On the death of Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach in 1967, the entire holdings of the Krupp family were transferred to the foundation. The foundation is the largest shareholder of the ThyssenKrupp industrial conglomerate (25.1% as of 2006) and largely controls the board of the company.
