The Future Foundation of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG
On 5 December 1861, the Liechtensteinische Landesbank was founded as the "Zins- und Credit-Landes-Anstalt im souverainen Fürstenthume Liechtenstein" (National Interest and Credit Institution in the Sovereign Principality of Liechtenstein).
On the occasion of its 150th anniversary in 2011, which was celebrated under the motto "150 Years of Looking Forward", the LLB established the "Future Foundation of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG". The purpose of this foundation is to provide targeted funding for social and environmental projects with a visionary impact.
Funding in the social sphere is awarded especially to projects that provide a sustainable improvement to the living and working conditions of people and that strengthen their individual responsibility. In the environmental sphere, special importance is attached to environmental sustainability. The Future Foundation is primarily active in Liechtenstein and Eastern Switzerland.
The Future Foundation is a member of the Association of Liechtenstein Charitable Foundations (VLGS), which aims to promote the vision of entrepreneurial philanthropy.
Funding opportunities for individuals and organisations
The Future Foundation supports solely activities and projects which generate a significant impact in the social and environmental fields. In doing so, it focuses on persons and organisations which serve as role models and whose activities on behalf of the community are effective and successful.
Grants to organisations and institutions
Funding for social and environmental projects
External parties may apply to the Future Foundation for grants and project funding. Applications must be submitted to the Office of the Future Foundation and be fully compatible with the purpose of the foundation. The applications must contain all the information set out in the Guide for Applications to the Future Foundation.
After the application has been received and a preliminary appraisal has been made by the Office of the Future Foundation, the Foundation Board as a rule reaches a decision on the application within six months. No general right to funding exists. The decisions of the Foundation Board are final and may be tied to specific conditions.
