University of Geneva / Philanthropy Series / #1 Philanthropy and Taxation

2 October 2014, 09.00 - 12.30
Hôtel Président Wilson, Geneva

Philanthropy is increasingly a topic of keen interest to individuals and companies alike, particularly in Geneva, a canton with a long tradition of giving. Proactive thinking about the framework conditions conducive to philanthropic initiatives can only benefit such momentum. For this reason, in line with the actions already engaged by SwissFoundations, the Canton of Geneva and Fondation Lombard Odier, the Faculty of Law of the University of Geneva launches a Philanthropy series.
