When using funds for charitable purposes, it pays off to look for optimal solutions. This benefits not only the people in need but
also the donors themselves.
As an umbrella foundation, the Limmat Foundations offers donors tailor-made solutions. Based on its long and varied experience, it is happy to show interested parties the advantages and disadvantages of each solution.
Purpose: The purpose must be chosen with particular care. Securing the purpose in the long term while leaving some flexibility open is not always easy in practice. In addition, the charitable purpose must be realistic and meaningful.4
Participation: Possible ways for donors to continue to have a say in the management and use of their gift after it has been made.
Type of assets: Donations do not always consist only of cash or securities. They can also be real estate, precious metals, works of art, participations, licenses, etc. Within a competent consultation, we will be happy to show you the most efficient solution for your idea.
Taxes: It is worth looking for a suitable solution, also with regard to tax optimization, especially in international situations (donor or beneficiary abroad) or if a more complex constellation is involved (participation in companies or real estate, estates, etc.).
