Welcome to the Christian Bachschuster Foundation!

Our foundation supports charitable institutions that in turn support disadvantaged children and young people regardless of their nationality.

This is what the German industrialist and Swiss immigrant Christian Bachschuster-Gehring (1907 - 2000) stipulated when he established his foundation in 1993.
He established the foundation modestly and selflessly out of gratitude for a fulfilled life's work in the state and the economy and in the vocational training of young people, in gratitude for the hospitality granted by Switzerland and in memory of his dear wife.

You can find out more about the eventful life of Christian Bachschuster in our 20th anniversary commemorative publication (German only).
