Welcome to Empiris

Empiris is a charitable umbrella foundation based in Zurich. It supports projects in the fields of science and research in particular.

Empiris offers founders the opportunity to set up their own subfoundation. This allows founders to support charitable endeavors according to their personal wishes without having to start a separate foundation. Empiris ensures that the subfoundation is fully supported.  Founders can be as involved in their subfoundation as they wish. The costs of setup and management are borne mostly by Empiris.


A subfoundation can be set up in your lifetime or as part of your will.

Empiris usually contacts potential project partners itself in order to identify eligible projects. Please see the information for applicants.

The umbrella foundation supports projects run by charitable and tax-exempt institutions domiciled in Switzerland and abroad.
