The Family Council announced today the establishment of ViaTalenta Foundation, a Swiss foundation with domicile in Zug, Switzerland. The Foundation will be the home of our humanitarian and philanthropic projects and engagements, specifically those related to the arts, education, sports and climate change. It will also serve as the collaboration hub between the family’s engagements and supra-national institutions, NGOs, other foundations and partners. All existing philanthropic and humanitarian programmes will be managed by the Foundation going forward.
“As we expand our sustainability focused philanthropic activities, it was natural for the family to create a dedicated entity to house them. We believe that the Foundation will not only increase our impact reach but allow us to work more closely with the not-for-profit sector both in Switzerland and abroad”.
Members of the Executive Committee of ViaTalenta Foundation and the family office attended this past Saturday 23rd November the annual “Bal de la Fondation Champittet”. This year, the fundraising efforts were in favour of the “Association Sportive Fair Play”. This association focuses on developing sports programmes for people with disabilities across all ages and capability levels.
“As a society it is important to ensure that all members feel included. Sports are a unique tool to achieve this. They provide opportunities to interact with others, strengthen one’s self-esteem, and facilitate acceptance and integration. We were impressed with the important work the Association Sportive Fair Play is doing and would like to thank the Fondation Champittet’s team for hosting us one more year.”
