Based in Zurich, and subject to Swiss law, the Julius Baer Foundation is closely linked to the Julius Baer Group, which provides financial and administrative assistance, as well as personnel support. This ensures that the Foundation operates autonomously and that every donation received is wholly used to fund its broad range of projects.

The Foundation is governed by the Foundation Board – senior executives from Bank Julius Baer and external experts – who determine the policies and strategic focus of the Foundation, and define project selection, duration of support, and fund allocation. The Board also determines the Foundation’s investment policy, which covers risk assessment and monitoring. The General Manager is responsible for the operational leadership of the Foundation.

Contributing to the Foundation is a meaningful, effective way to make a difference. One hundred per cent of your donation goes to the Foundation’s projects, because Bank Julius Baer sponsors all overhead costs. In addition to this, Bank Julius Baer matches the donations made to the Foundation.
