...due to technological development, it is now possible to find any charitable foundation on the internet (e.g. in the commercial register). However, the information that can be found is inadequate and hardly serves as a tool to simplify the search for the appropriate foundation or the search for a cooperation partner among foundations. As a consequence, this information tends to contribute to the inefficiency of the sector, as many applications sent out do not correspond to the current foundation objectives.Foundation Report 2013
According to swissfoundations.ch, there are around 13,000 charitable foundations in Switzerland, with assets of around CHF 100 billion.
Different types of possible sponsors
3 to 5% of these assets are distributed annually for the promotion of science, education, culture, art, sport, charitable work, etc. These figures do not take into account other funds, e.g. those of the church, sponsoring money from companies, institutions abroad, etc.
We have launched fundraiso.ch to help you find your sponsors efficiently.
Systematic search for funds
Fundraiso.ch is the first online platform in Switzerland that makes it possible to systematically search for funding. As a user of our platform, you benefit from the experiences of previous fundraisers who have already been in contact with individual funders. Through the experience reports, it is possible for you to assess where an application seems sensible and where not.
We also try to involve the supporters by offering them to manage their own profile.
