VP Bank Foundation
The VP Bank Foundation was initiated in 2006 and established in 2007 to mark the 50th anniversary of VP Bank. In keeping with its statutes, the Foundation patronises projects, individuals and institutions that have gained an outstanding profile in the areas ecology, art, education, science or culture. Charitable activities in the interest of the broad public are also supported.
Moreover, this patronage is intended to be connected in some way with Liechtenstein as well as the corporate values of VP Bank. Donations can also be made for welfare and social purposes.

In connection with the annual “Lichtblick” campaign, 33 social institutions in Liechtenstein received grants from the Foundation: it disbursed a total of almost CHF 72,000 to this initiative and other projects of social institutions and associations in Liechtenstein and the surrounding region.
In the spirit of giving the young generation a greater boost, the Foundation supports various projects in the area of youth theatre and music as well as offerings for pre-school children.
Again this past year, a portion of the Foundation’s capital was invested in the EMF Microfinance Fund AGmvK as well as in VP Bank Balanced (CHF) Strategy Fund class C units. Via returns from the latter commitment, the relief organisation “SolidarMed” received financial aid. Owing to the recognised accomplishments of this organisation, the purpose-related funding agreement was renewed and the contributions increased.
The VP Bank Foundation is a member of the Association of Liechtenstein Non-profit Foundations e.V. and the “Swiss-Foundations” association of charitable institutions. The Board of Trustees is involved in the expansion of the Liechtenstein association and benefits from the valuable exchange of ideas in both organisations.
