The Palatin Foundation was established in 2011 and is based in Basel. It is committed, within the scope of its purposes, to providing future opportunities for children, teenagers and young adults.

As an independent foundation, we support projects that are not, or only partially, financed by the public sector and private organizations.

We focus on projects that are completed within a certain time period, cover a special need, guarantee quality and are sustainable.

Our commitment is based on partnership.

The Palatin Foundation is subject to the foundation supervision of the Canton of Basel City (BSABB) and is a member of swissfoundations, the Swiss association of charitable foundations
