Partnerships, Projects, Prizes
The Jubilee Fund primarily maintains long-term partnerships with charitable organizations operating nationally. Our resources provide assistance for initiatives that combine knowledge sharing, a focus on quality, innovation, impact, and sustainability.
To ensure that smaller institutions receive support too, the Fund also contributes to projects that have strong regional or local connections; generally these are one-time donations.
The prizes awarded for achievements in education and culture create platforms for particularly talented individuals and showcase innovative ideas. The Credit Suisse Young Artist Award and the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes are awarded to exceptional young musicians, while the Credit Suisse Award for Best Teaching makes an important contribution to the quality of teaching at Swiss universities, technical colleges, and universities of applied sciences.
