Fondation des Fondateurs is moving!

As of July 1, 2021, we moved from Haus der Stiftungen to Breitingerstrasse 35, 8002 Zurich, and entered into an office partnership with EducaSwiss, the Swiss Foundation for the Promotion and Financing of Education. 

Of course, we will continue to maintain a regular exchange with SwissFoundations, the association of Swiss grant-making foundations. The space in the centrally located office premises, which are ideally connected to public transport, is more generous and offers you the possibility to hold advisory board meetings at our premises in the future. In addition, a parking space is also available if required. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you as soon as possible in our new offices
