Taxes & Legal Information

Organisation and Financing

The members of the ETH Zurich Foundation Board kindly offer their services on a voluntary basis. Operations are financed by capital gains made from the total assets under management. Should a poor fiscal year lead to insufficient revenue to cover the costs, the fund capital can be used proportionally. The assignments of financial resources are all reported.

Tax deduction

Donations to the ETH Zurich Foundation are tax deductible. All donors automatically receive a donation receipt.

Asset Management

Professional asset management is ensured with binding investment directives. The Foundation’s Investment Committee pays particular attention to following a risk-conscious and sustainable investment strategy.


Auditing is carried out in compliance with Swiss GAAP FER regulations by PricewaterhouseCoopers AG, Zurich.
