VF Unlimited Philanthropy Forum
The vision and generous support of philanthropists—and of foundations in particular—are essential to the field of education and music. VF Philanthropy Forum aims to create a framework for reflection—for sharing knowledge across generations and for engaging and fostering philanthropic initiative—all in the context of the world’s most inspiring classical music festival. The Forum is presented in partnership by the Verbier Festival andSwiss Philanthropy Foundation.
