Fondation SUISA

Fondation SUISA

The FONDATION SUISA is funded by an annual allocation corresponding to 2.5% of SUISA's domestic performance and broadcasting revenues in Switzerland and the Duchy of Liechtenstein.

Since 1989 the FONDATION SUISA has been encouraging and promoting all genres of Swiss music by supporting the projects of Swiss composers as well as publishers who encourage the creative work of Swiss composers. It also edits and publishes anthologies of all kinds of recorded music to guarantee the most comprehensive choice possible of Swiss music. Its activities also include campaigns that promote Swiss music in Switzerland and abroad, e.g. by organising appearances at trade fairs.
