Funding institutions

FONDATION SUISA: FONDATION SUISA has been promoting contemporary Swiss musical creation in all its diversity since 1989. FONDATION SUISA does not only promote music through "passive" funding applications, it is an active stakeholder in the Swiss musical landscape. Through project grants, selected partnerships and presence at international events and fairs, our reach is constantly expanding. FONDATION SUISA

Stiftung PhonoProduzierende: Stiftung PhonoProduzierende, the Foundation for the producers of sound recordings, only supports projects serving to promote the status of record producers and the use of sound recordings in cultural life. These projects can be cultural events, competitions, awards, vocational and advanced training in areas related to the production and use of sound recordings, as well as general cultural action for the promotion of sound recording productions. As a rule, Stiftung PhonoProduzierende does not make any direct grants to record producers or concerts. Stiftung Phonoproduziernende

Schweizerische Interpretenstiftung - SIS: SIS, the Foundation established in 1988 by SIG - the Swiss Cooperative Society for Performing Artists - has been financed since 1993 by regular contributions from performing artists (phono and audiovisual) charged to SWISSPERFORM's deduction for cultural and social purposes.
The Foundation supports live performances and tours (music, dance and theatre), health promotion and prevention projects (e.g. the hearing protection project for Swiss musicians), as well as providing legal protection for occupational accidents and diseases, and emergency aid in case of hardship.
Moreover, it is actively engaged in Swiss Music Export and the Swiss Foundation for the retraining of performing artists. SIS also supports the Swiss Society for Music Medicine and, internationally, FIM and FIA. Schweizerischen Interpretenstiftung
