Grants and donations must have a social or charitable or cultural character.
Grants to individuals are made with the aim of helping people in a situation of need so they can have an independent life again.
For a grant out of the funds comprised in the foundation, it is essential that the person concerned is in a situation of need. It is important for the foundation that the recipients of the funds are actively involved in the solution of their problems.
The foundation grants support to institutions and projects with social, charitable or cultural effects in respect of which evidence can be provided that there is a situation of need, that there is a common-benefit character and that the requirements for their respective activity or realisation are met.
The foundation primarily funds projects in Liechtenstein and in the neighbouring areas of the Alpine Rhine Valley region. Granting support to disaster relief and development cooperation as well as projects directly related to Liechtenstein or the foundation are not subject to any geographic restriction.
The foundation does not engage in sponsoring in the sense that it grants support to persons or institutions with the expectation that it receives valuable consideration through advertising or otherwise which is then beneficial to its own communications and marketing goals.
There is no legal entitlement to receive any funding; the decision is up to the foundation council.
