Bring your knowledge to a foundation board

Studies have shown that the skill profile on Swiss foundation boards is often not balanced and that various skills are either not available at all or are available too often. Many people - and perhaps you too - would have the skills you are looking for, but there is no contact between you and the foundation. It is our task to establish contact between you and the seeking foundations.

 

With our service you can be connected with a foundation and complement its capability profile. Especially small foundations and NPOs are happy to forego additional professional personnel recruiting, but this can be carried out on request (e.g. as a supplement).

Offer

You can create your individual profile in the database today. Your profile will be created with explicit consideration of your future activities as a member of the Board from a foundation and will be used exclusively for this purpose. After activation, you can be found and contacted by searching institutions. Do you need help? We offer you a profile check (flat fee CHF 100.-) or help you to create a profile (CHF 200.- / h).

Process

After you have completed the short registration below, you will be sent a link to verify your email address. Then you can start completing your profile by capturing your industry experience, education, interests, etc. After entering all relevant data, including your goals regarding a future board mandate, you have the opportunity to activate your account by paying the usage fee. By activating your account for a fee, you are demonstrating your interest in being found in the VR database. As soon as the subscription fee has been paid, you can be found in our database of companies that have a Board of Directors mandate to award during the selected period of use. You cannot actively search for companies. However, persons responsible for companies or institutions who are responsible for the expansion or replacement of board members (board of directors committees, foundation board committees, etc.) can find your profile. If you are still interested, the company will contact you in order to initiate the next steps (personal discussions, assessment, etc.).

Costs

To activate your profile, you only pay CHF 200.- at the beginning and only once. You can choose from different durations right from the start:

3 years: One-time fee CHF 200.- plus CHF 40.- per year = total CHF 320.-
5 years: One-time fee CHF 200.- plus CHF 32.- per year = total CHF 360.-
8 years: One-time fee CHF 200.- plus CHF 30.- per year = total CHF 440.-

You can easily pay by e-banking, credit card or PayPal. Only with the payment of the fee your profile becomes visible for searching companies and your chances to receive a VR mandate should improve accordingly.

Procedure of the subscription

Before your subscription expires, you will be notified by e-mail and given the opportunity to renew your subscription. If you do not wish to renew your subscription, the profile will be switched offline so that you can no longer be found in the VR database. You can reactivate your account at any time.

Registration

At this point, you can start creating your profile: Register.
