The SV Foundation was first established in Bern in 1914 by Else Züblin-Spiller as an association aimed at providing soldiers with shelter in times of war. Turned into a foundation in 1999, SV Stiftung offers financial support to projects aimed at providing healthy and balanced nutrition across all segments of the population and raising awareness. The Foundation is funded through its dividends as SV Group AG’s shareholder.
