With its commitment, Gebert Rüf Stiftung wants to contribute to the launch of relevant initiatives and projects with clear added value for Switzerland as a foundation location. This includes the professionalisation of the foundation sector as well as continuing education, advocacy and discussion about the foundation sector. The scaling and sustainable funding of these initiatives are central to support. To this end, Gebert Rüf Stiftung cooperates with funding partners from the third sector, the state and the private sector.
Key funding partners include SwissFoundations, the umbrella association of Swiss grant-making foundations, and the Center for Philanthropy Studies (CEPS).
