Foundations in Thurgau: Regional Commitment & Support
There are 259 active charitable foundations in the canton of Thurgau. The density of foundations in the canton is lower than the Swiss average, with 9 foundations per 10’000 inhabitants. Many of the Thurgau foundations are primarily active in the regional area and within the canton. However, grant giving organizations in Thurgau also include applications from other cantons in Eastern Switzerland in their funding, and conversely, organisations and projects from Thurgau have good chances with foundations in neighbouring cantons.
In addition to thematic proximity, geographical proximity is also important for fundraisers in their search for suitable grant giving organizations. Therefore, fundraisers usually first contact possible supporters in the immediate vicinity and with a direct connection to the organisation’s purpose, and then spread their grant requests further and further. With foundation registers such as stiftungschweiz.ch, it is possible to search specifically for suitable foundations and projects in the region, but also beyond, using the filter options.
Culture, Sport & Infrastructure: Foundation Landscape Thurgau
Foundations in Thurgau are as diverse as the resident projects and institutions. The funding areas of culture, sport and development cooperation are considered focal points. Foundations that focus on education and research as well as environmental protection are also present in the canton of Thurgau. In the Thurgau foundation landscape, international collaborations and cooperations regularly arise due to the proximity to Germany. This is very gratifying, but the foundation law of the two countries differs fundamentally in many respects. Foundations that are active across borders usually have good insights into legal formalities. Networking between German and Swiss foundations can be helpful in successfully funding and implementing bilateral projects.
