UBS Foundation for Social Issues and Education

UBS Foundation for Social Issues and Education sees itself and operates as a non-profit, or charitable, foundation in a rapidly changing social environment marked by globalization and pluralization. The present and future social and cultural challenges demand solidarity and commitment. Against this background we feel committed to the advancement of the common good in Switzerland, focusing on two key areas in the interest of a future-oriented, socially acceptable and sustainable societal development: integration and qualification.

UBS Foundation for Social Issues and Education supports, on the one hand, initiatives and projects by institutions, organizations and private individuals in the fields of education and training, employment, and integration into society and the world of work for people facing social disadvantage and/or adverse learning conditions. Secondly, the foundation supports efforts and projects in education and advanced training for groups of persons with particular potential, and, also, ventures and projects promoting entrepreneurial thinking and activity in general, and training in business and leadership in particular.
