We are looking foreward to receive applications from organisations that meet the Palatin Foundation's funding goals. In order to avoid unnecessary administrative effort, please check before submitting the following:

  • only children, teenagers and young adults benefit from the project
  • the project is implemented in the Basel region, in Switzerland or in one of Europe's regions affected by poverty
  • it is a practical or research project in the field of education and/or training or it is in the field of medical research
  • the project meets the goals within the funding fields of education, training or medical research

Please also note what the Palatin Foundation does not support:

  • Construction projects
  • Projects in favour of individuals
  • Projects in favour of small target groups
  • Projects that benefit adults
  • Projects that are not limited in time


A good education that encourages free and independent thinking is the foundation for a self-determined life.

The Palatin Foundation therefore supports and launches projects in the field of education to promote the self-determination and ability to participate of children, teenagers and young adults.

We support practical and research projects in this area and step in where there are gaps in state care. The focus is on educational projects that supplement school education and are found during the transition from school education to vocational training.

In the field of education, we offer project contributions starting from CHF 10'000.


Supporting family structures enables children to grow up in a sheltered environment, which in turn forms the basis for building a self-determined, reflective life.

In the area of training, we are committed to ensuring that children with difficult conditions, such as foster children, sick children, children of ill parents, or children growing up in poverty-stricken areas of Europe also have better conditions for development.

We support practical and research projects in this area and step in where there are gaps in state care.

In the field of training, we offer project contributions starting from CHF 10'000.

Medical research

Only a mentally and physically healthy society can support the goals of the donor and the Palatin Foundation.

We therefore support research into diseases and the development of treatment options. The projects are directed in particular against chronic or life-threatening diseases that occur in children, teenagers or young adults, thus hindering or making their development impossible.

We support clinical research projects with a contribution of a maximum of CHF 100'000 per year for a maximum period of two years. You can enter these research projects that are limited to two years or provide start-up funding.

The approval of the ethics committee is an integral part of the application for medical research projects that require such approval. Funding can only be granted after the approval of the ethics committee. In exceptional cases, the Palatin Foundation will contribute retroactively to the costs of the ethics committee approval with a contribution of less than CHF 10,000.

We do not approve follow-up applications in medical research.
