Donors may set up a subfoundation under the umbrella of the SYMPHASIS Foundation and are free to determine the charitable purposes of this subfoundation. The SYMPHASIS Foundation is responsible for managing the operations of the subfoundation. A subfoundation can be set up during your lifetime or as part of your last will.
The costs of setting up and managing the subfoundation are borne largely by the umbrella foundation.
SYMPHASIS usually contacts potential project partners itself in order to identify eligible projects. Charitable and tax-exempt institutions domiciled in Switzerland can also independently submit requests for project support. However, experience shows that the likelihood of receiving support is relatively low.
