UBS Culture Foundation: Current Events
The UBS Culture Foundation is part of the bank's social commitment in Switzerland. Since UBS assumes the administrative costs of the foundation, the annual returns on the foundation capital can be given away in full. At the same time, a Foundation Board comprising representatives of the bank and renowned external experts is responsible for the allocation of funds. The UBS Culture Foundation is committed to promoting cultural life and artistic creation in Switzerland. It generally supports individuals and projects put forward at the initiative of artists and institutions. In 2010, UBS reviewed 566 applications from the six categories of Visual Art, Heritage Conservation & Archaeology, Film, Literature, Music and Humanities & Cultural Studies. 205 of the applications met the foundation's criteria and were therefore submitted to the Foundation Board for evaluation. In total, 83 projects were evaluated positively and subsidized to the tune of CHF 1,125,500.
