Time-limited areas of activity
With its limited funds Gebert Rüf Stiftung seeks to create impetus by bundling its operations into areas of activity. It does not establish clearly drawn, consolidated programme lines, but periodically redefines its focal points. The fact that the areas of activity (or the grant-making programmes maintained within the scope of areas of activity) are time-limited means that capacity is repeatedly freed up for the development of new and bigger initiatives.
Promoting pioneership and interlinking
When pursuing its strategy based on areas of activity, Gebert Rüf Stiftung not only funds externally proposed high-quality innovative projects which satisfy the support criteria especially closely, it also initiates and interlinks projects with the aim of continually developing new, time-limited focal points within the overall scheme of its grant-making activities.
