Foundation Prize

Awards for outstanding achievements

Each year, associations or institutions, as well as a number of corporate clients of Groupe Mutuel, develop particularly outstanding projects related to health in Switzerland. Groupe Mutuel Foundation has decided to showcase these initiatives by creating the Foundation Prize. 
In July, Groupe Mutuel Foundation will award four prizes that will be presented at an event in September. On this occasion, the winners will receive a financial incentive to continue their work.

The Prize for associations and institutions rewards dedicated institutions, associations and individuals. The selected entities or individuals will have contributed to improving health in Switzerland through their prevention, promotion, research or education initiatives.

The three winners of the Prize for associations and institutions will receive financial support ranging from CHF 5,000 to 20,000.
