The transfer of knowledge from research to practice has long been a pivotal objective of Gebert Rüf Stiftung. This is why the foundation supports projects that are relevant to actual practice and contribute to the development of the foundation system or drive the debate on foundations forward. The knowledge generated should be passed on through courses, conferences and workshops and made available to a broad spectrum of stakeholders. Other activities that promote the dissemination of knowledge include advocacy and consulting, areas in which Gebert Rüf Stiftung works closely with established institutions such as SwissFoundations and Fondation des Fondateurs. The latter is an independent umbrella foundation which is active throughout Switzerland and offers the opportunity to set up a dependent foundation under the umbrella of an existing grant-making foundation.
