The Leister Foundation is committed to upholding its objectives by supporting art, culture, education and science.
As the initiator of the "tüftelPark Pilatus" in the canton of Obwalden, the Leister Foundation established a tin workshop in 2016 to promote young people in technical professions. We are motivating more and more students to deal with technical topics, thanks to our contributions and the Leister Tüftel Prize. In addition, the Leister Foundation supports expeditions to regions that are geographically and logistically difficult to access in effort to enable scientists to conduct their research here.
Customs and tradition, folklore and classical music, including the annual folk culture festival "OBWALD" and the chamber music festival "Erstklassik" at the border of lake Sarnen. We also contribute to the cultural heritage preservation and support corresponding book projects.
