Trai­ning makes you fit 

Neben den digitalen Kernleistungen auf bilden Services und Trainings eine wichtige Brücke zu unseren Nutzer:innen. Mit Essentials und Bootcamps in sieben Themenfeldern statten wir sie passgenau mit aktuellem Wissen aus.

Even though digi­ta­li­sa­tion brings us many conve­ni­en­ces, digi­tal trans­for­ma­tion is not some­thing that comes for free. StiftungSchweiz carefully accom­pa­nies you through the tran­si­tion from analo­gue to digi­tal tools and supports you with appli­ca­tion-orien­ted formats.

Essen­ti­als and Bootcamps

The Essen­ti­als are 45-minute webi­nars available for users start­ing from the Star­ter level free of charge. They provide an over­view of selec­ted topics and conclude with a Q&A session. We delve deeper with one-day Boot­camps, held on-site at our faci­li­ties in Basel SBB rail­way station or via live­stream. We combine theo­re­ti­cal content with inter­ac­tive elements to ensure prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion of what has been learned.

In-depth Explo­ra­tion in Seven Thema­tic Areas

Our offe­rings are speci­fi­cally desi­gned to address the current chal­lenges and needs of the non-profit sector. Toge­ther with the subject matter experts from our part­ners, we provide trai­ning in areas such as fund­rai­sing, grants, and finance. We are also opening up new thema­tic areas within the frame­work of a Lear­ning Jour­ney, such as the “Fund Future” start­ing in autumn 2024 with our coope­ra­tion part­ner, SwissFoundations.
