The goal of the Teleki Teka Foundation-Basel is to offer support for Samuel Teleki’s library founded in 1802. The idea of the foundation was born among the descendants of the Teleki family today living in Basel.
One of the major goals of the Basel Foundation is to make the Teleki Library as known as possible, both to professionals and the general public.
The Foundation receives no financial support from the state, all its activities are carried out by volunteers, while the financial support comes from the members of the family, friends and patrons. Thanks to these donations the Basel Foundation managed to improve the state of the building by intervention on the walls, windows and the roof.
The Foundation was set up and functions according to Swiss law.
