Different views on the ongoing revision of Swiss foundation law
On 14 September 2021, the National Council approved the amendments to the law on foundations as part of the parliamentary initiative "The Swiss Foundation Sector. Strengthening” (14.470, so-called Luginbühl initiative). The amendments were approved in the overall vote by 188 votes to 0 with one abstention. In particular, the National Council had taken up the regulation of foundation supervision complaints and the remuneration of foundation boards, which SwissFoundations, as well as other stakeholders of the sector, had strongly advocated in the legislative process. The Council of States has now opposed these two points in its session on 22 September 2021.
