Become a philanthropist

Personal Philanthropic Fund

Set up a Personal Philanthropic Fund with an initial starting capital or through an annual contribution.

Your fund is an independent entity within the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation and can be named according to your wishes. Without the burden of running a foundation, you can focus your efforts on achieving your goals and become personally involved in projects you care about, with the help of your family if you wish.
