The SIG-Zukunftsstiftung champions tolerance in Swiss society. This includes campaigning against antisemitism and promoting knowledge of the Jewish community.
The SIG-Zukunftsstiftung (SIG Future Foundation) is a not-for-profit public-sector charity based in Basel. It was founded in November 2021. The purpose of the Foundation is to promote and support tolerance throughout Swiss society. In particular, it funds and supports projects and initiatives aimed at opposing and countering antisemitism and racism in Switzerland. By teaching about Judaism, its history and culture, it steps up the dialogue between Jews as members of one of the oldest minority groups in Switzerland and the majority of society. By fostering an understanding of the Jewish community, its identity, history and culture, it consolidates awareness of the Jewish community as an integral part of modern-day Switzerland.

The SIG Future Foundation actively promotes initiatives by the SIG in the following areas:
- Teaching and raising awareness about Judaism, its history and traditions
