Do you have a project that you have been working on for some time? Are you wondering which legal form your philanthropic organisation should take and which rules apply for tax-exempt status. A review of the legal, tax and governance issues is essential to building a strong organisation and effective fundraising.
Julie Wynne shared her valuable experience and knowledge on philanthropic organisations and the key differences between the legal status of Associations and Foundations in Switzerland. She explained how to register your non-profit organisation and to apply for tax exemption. She also gave some insights on the trends in the Swiss philanthropic sector.
In the active part of the workshop and based on your projects, we reviewed which legal form would be the most suitable for your organisation and identify the first steps to be taken to set it up.
