The «Fondazione per la Rinascita di Chiesso» (Foundation for the Rebirth of Chiesso, FRC)

The FRC Foundation has existed since August 1972 and has two purposes:

  • (a) To preserve the mountain of Ces (Chiesso), in Chironico, in its traditional characteristics, and
  • (b) to revive the agglomeration of Ces, in particular by promoting community life experiences.

The FRC foundation is non-profit-making and of public benefit.

The Foundation Board is composed of 3 to 9 members and is elected every two years by the Association Comunità di Ces(CdC) which is the founder.

Like all foundations, the FRC Foundation is supervised by a public body, in our case by the Ostschweizer BVG- und Stiftungsaufsicht, Filiale Muralto (Registernummer 702611).
The annual audit is carried out by the Studio fiduciario ATTEST audit & consulting SA (Udo Schiller), Lugano.

The FRC Foundation is registered under the number CH-506.7.000.398-9 in the Commercial Register of the Canton of Ticino. An excerpt from the register can be found here (PDF, status 10.05.2024).
