Accentus is a charitable umbrella foundation based in Zurich. It supports social, ecological, cultural, and scientific projects in particular.
Accentus 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. Accentus 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 Accentus.
A subfoundation can be set up in your lifetime or as part of your will.
Accentus usually contacts potential project partners itself in order to identify eligible projects. Please see the information for applicants.
The umbrella foundation exclusively supports projects run by charitable and tax-exempt institutions domiciled in Switzerland.
