About us

The Julius Baer Foundation, the non-profit grant foundation of the Julius Baer Group, has dedicated itself to making meaningful and impactful societal contributions for more than 50 years. When the Julius Baer Foundation was established by Walter J. Baer in 1965, its aim was to provide support to all forms of art and culture, the various sciences, along with carefully selected charitable causes within Switzerland.

The Foundation’s reach has extended along with the growth of the Group and, today, we collaborate with partner organisations worldwide in three core areas:

• Solid vocational training for youths

• Recycling PLUS projects for the environment

• Exchange between various social classes that are characterised by inequality in terms of means and opportunities.

Our cultural heritage remains a part of our commitment through the donation of existing art awards.
