The Foundation acts as custodian for its prestigious collections but does not have the financing to cover its day-to-day operations. It has endured over the years thanks only to the generous donations of its sponsors and institutional partners. Lack of long-term visibility is a particular issue in the current context, which is increasingly difficult for non-profit organisations generally. However much or little you can give, by financially supporting the Foundation, you are affording an institution of great educational and heritage value, both for Switzerland and the rest of the world, the opportunity to glimpse a more secure future.
