Age Stiftung Awards Wohnen+ Basel CHF 270,000


A high point in the Wohnen+ Basel calendar came at year end with the announcement that we were being presented with an award of CHF 270,000 by Age Stiftung, a major national foundation.


Age Stiftung is active in German-speaking Switzerland, promoting and financially supporting sustainable and innovative solutions that allow older people to adapt to social and environmental changes in modern society. 


After an initial contact with Age Stiftung last summer, we submitted a formal proposal, carefully prepared by our hard-working Grant Writing Committee. In the autumn Age Stiftung met with us, viewed the Westfeld site and met the team from wohnen&mehr. They confirmed the CHF 270,000 grant in early December. This grant is substantially larger than the figure we originally applied for and puts us on a very sound financial footing.


We are gratified that a recognized charity like Age Stiftung supports our vision for Wohnen+ Basel of improving lives by bringing people together in communities.
