Fontana Foundation was established in November 2008 by Mario Fontana and is domiciled in Zurich, Switzerland. The foundation’s goal is to help the very poor in this world by providing them training for a better income, access to essential infrastructure and/or financing to start a small business. In the longer term they should be able to lead autonomous and productive lives in dignity and prosperity.

These goals are a reflection of the passion and hope of the Fontana family to help those who need it the most. Together with his son Raphael and daughter Olivia, Mario Fontana is managing the foundation for sustainable change. The foundation’s fields of activity are clearly defined and projects are carefully selected, based on their social impact.
