Building a better future

“As a responsible family and as a strong group we want to contribute to the further development of society. Our goal is not simply to help those who are in distress. We support people in their endeavours to improve their lives by way of their own effort by promoting help for self-help.” Michael Hilti

The Hilti Foundation was founded in 1996 by the Martin Hilti Family Trust as a charitable foundation. The Foundation supports projects focussed on the areas of education, science and social development worldwide.

The Foundation’s objectives are based on the principles of sustainability, scalability, and measurability.
