The SIG aims to make Jewish culture accessible to a broad range of audiences. It therefore subsidises innovative projects and organisations that deal with Jewish topics.
The following conditions apply to an application for support by the SIG:
Eligibility for support
Subsidies can be granted to:
- Jewish organisations of national and international significance;
- (in exceptional cases) individuals for projects that are of great interest with regard to Jews and Judaism in Switzerland;
- non-Jewish organisations provided they and/or their project are of great interest with regard to Judaism in Switzerland.
Applications for subsidies are assessed individually by the SIG office. If the assessment is favourable, the application goes to the Board of Directors for approval.
To be included in the SIG’s annual budget, an application for support should, if possible, be submitted by the end of the year prior to the implementation of the project. If this is not possible, it should be submitted as early as possible; at least, however, two months in advance. No subsidies can be approved retroactively after the end of a financial year.
Documentation to be submitted
The following documents must be included with an application for a subsidy:
- reasons for the application;
- detailed project description (programme, venues, dates, etc.);
- budget, financing plan, own financial contribution by applicant, etc.;
- an annual report and annual financial account, if available.
The SIG may require interim and final reports on subsidised projects. Moreover, the SIG must be mentioned as sponsor in publications, and on posters and programmes in the case of subsidised events, unless the SIG explicitly states that it does not want this.
