The DGRV - Deutscher Genossenschafts- und Raiffeisenverband e. V. (German Cooperative and Raiffeisen Confederation – reg. assoc.) is both the apex and auditing association of the German cooperative organisation. We work in the tradition of Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen and Hermann Schulze-Delitzsch.

The cooperative link-up group is by far the largest economic organisation in Germany in terms of members, with over 22 million members. Of these, 2.8 million are members of housing cooperatives which are not organised under the umbrella of the DGRV.
