Swiss Philanthropy Foundation has been founded in 2006 to provide donors with a light structure which makes it possible to simplify and promote giving.
To promote the development of philanthropy by supporting bodies or projects of general interest, for example, in the fields of humanitarian aid, social or medical assistance, and the protection of the environment, and culture.
- Dynamism: There are many effective organisations and efficient projects. The increase in the resources made available to them can actually lessen the impact of their work. The Foundation seeks to encourage and support dynamic giving. It asks donors who have set up funds to maintain regular philanthropic activity.
- Coherency: Through its network of partnerships with experts in the field, the Foundation proposes a comprehensive service which ensures the impact of donations. A true added value. It follows up on projects ensuring that the realisation of the project is in line with the donor's initial request.
- Responsibility: The Foundation is responsible for the funds entrusted to it and undertakes to actively respect the donor's initial intention. The financial management of the donor's fund is assumed by the Foundation or by an external manager depending on the amount or the agreement between the parties.
- Discretion: The Foundation offers donors a way of facilitating their commitment by promoting efficiency and ensures discretion.
