A new manage­ment structure

Sabina Grassi will take up the presi­dency of Swiss­Foun­da­ti­ons at its gene­ral meeting on 6 June 2023. She is step­ping into the shoes of Lukas von Orelli, who has been in office since 2016. This change in its upper manage­ment invol­ves the asso­cia­tion of grant giving foun­da­ti­ons adop­ting a new orga­ni­sa­tio­nal form. By taking on a modern, agile struc­ture, it is respon­ding to the current size and incre­asing chal­lenges crea­ted by the dyna­mic deve­lo­p­ment of the phil­an­thro­pic sector. One core element of the new orga­ni­sa­tio­nal form is its presi­dency ‘primus inter pares’. Now, the holder of this role will change on an annual basis, giving the presi­dent the oppor­tu­nity to focus on their presi­den­tial tasks. The indi­vi­dual members of the board are grou­ped into commit­tees so they can contri­bute their perso­nal exper­tise and expe­ri­ence even more effec­tively in the future.
