For over fifty years, the Julius Baer Foundation has been dedicated to making meaningful and impactful contributions to society. The grant foundation of the Julius Baer Group was established in 1965 by Walter J. Bär (1895-1970) to support all forms of art and culture, various sciences and carefully selected charitable causes in Switzerland.
Over the years, the Foundation has expanded its presence and reach. We helped to found the ‘Julius Bär Stiftung Deutschland’ in 2019 and today we support initiatives worldwide that drive change and have the potential to become role models for others. With our network of partner organisations, we dedicate ourselves to two strategic core areas: Wealth Inequality and Solutions Replacing Plastics. Additionally, we continue our traditional solidarity and art engagement through the support of the Julius Baer employee-based JB Cares organisation and selected art museums in Switzerland.
