More than 20,000 foundations in Germany and 13,000 foundations in Switzerland give to charitable causes. Even if only a small fraction of grants is given for international development (around 10%), this sum amounts to several millions of EUR every year. Also, Germany hosts some of the biggest grantmaking foundations in Europe, while there are several smaller Swiss family foundations with a focus on development cooperation.

This webinar will therefore:

  • give you an insight into the inner workings of the foundation market of these two countries: 1. we will start with a snapshot of the Swiss and German foundation landscape;
  • present research strategies on how to identify the most promising foundations for your cause on the Internet;
  • provide tips and tricks on how to write winning funding proposals;
  • and finish off with a round of Q&A where you can post your most burning questions on this topic.

After the webinar you:

– will be able to make a sound decision if German or Swiss foundations are a suitable donor for your organisation;
