Realising our mission to perform the entire vocal oeuvre of Bach depends on the financial support of private individuals and institutions who contribute in large and small, and who share our great passion for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Join our circle of contributors and help us complete our 25-year project.

Tax deductions

Contributions are tax-deductible for all residents of Switzerland.

Thanks to our friends' association (Förderverein) registered in Munich, it is also possible to support the J. S. Bach Foundation project from Germany. Through a donation or other contributions, you can financially support the J. S. Bach Foundation and help it continue on its artistic journey.


Supporters resident in Germany should note that their financial contributions are tax-deductible only when the contribution is a true donation without any benefits or services received in return. This means that contributions are non-deductible when you select a support category such as Friend, Supporter, etc. We thus request that if you would like to receive a donation receipt, please transfer your payment to the “Förderverein Kuratorium J. S. Bach-Stiftung e.V." with “donation” clearly marked as the payment reference and include your address.
