The aims of the foundation

The purpose of the foundation is to support the upbringing of children and adolescents by providing household and education support, to combat extreme poverty and to promote healthcare. The geographical focus is on developing and emerging countries, because the living conditions of many people can be improved there with modest means by European standards.


Susanne Schroff established the SANNI Foundation in December 2010 in Zurich, Switzerland, after working many years for her parents’ charitable foundation. As successful entrepreneurs, her parents, Ingrid and Gunther Schroff, used their own assets to create The Schroff Foundations 1984 in Germany, to support social and scientific causes. They were determined to give something back to society and provide opportunity to people who would not normally receive any. For 20 years, they supported a small charity in Trivandrum, southern India, that ran a mobile diabetes clinic and support for underprivileged children. The SANNI Foundation has since grown the charity’s activities considerably and expanded into Myanmar.

Corinne Fischer is actively involved in the Foundation as Vice President and Benefactor. Furthermore, the Foundation Board consists of the entrepreneurs Milan Prenosil and Joachim Schoss. Dr. Markus Kick, Dr. Thomas Kirchhofer and Hansruedi Merz round off the team with their expertise in the legal, financial and medical fields.
