The umbrella foundation exclusively supports charitable and tax-exempt institutions domiciled in Switzerland and abroad. As a rule, Empiris contacts potential project partners itself. Unsolicited requests for support are therefore rarely accepted.
The following requests for support are not considered:
- Requests from individuals (Empiris does not offer scholarships, for example)
- Requests for emergency and disaster relief
- Requests for political and religious campaigns
- Requests for projects that have already been completed
Additionally, requests for contributions to budgets rather than a specific project and project requests that do not meet the criteria with regard to content and form (defined under "Applications") are not considered.
Requests submitted to Empiris are reviewed on an ongoing basis. The umbrella foundation's project managers will be happy to help with any inquiries relating to project submissions. Please send an email.
Empiris does not enter into correspondence regarding decisions to decline requests for support.
