Here is a summary of what the Foundation for True Life in God is all about, the reason for its creation, the mission it has been entrusted with and formalities of importance:
“I have created the Foundation for True Life in God, based in Geneva, Switzerland, in order that care be taken and help provided for the diffusion of the True Life in God messages I have received since 1986. The Foundation will outlive my person and is, therefore, bound by my written instructions. The Foundation, through its authority and statutory institutions is to observe and act accordingly, taking in particular to heart our Lord’s instructions:
remember My Holy Presence; be My vessels of Light carrying My Word and diffuse My Messages” (TLIG, April 10, 1990).
A Swiss based foundation is a legal entity, closely supervised by the federal authorities who have a legal duty to ensure that all activities rigorously comply with the statutes of the Foundation. An annual report must be submitted to this effect. This stands as a guarantee that the Foundation for True Life in God will work as intended by its founder. Any changes to the now adopted statutes need the federal authorities’ approval. The Foundation's official birthday is March 10, 2008.
The Foundation is run by the Foundation Council of up to 12 members. Vassula has nominated the initial 9 members of the council. Henceforth the council will renew itself by majority vote, strictly following guidelines for future new members.
The Council Members are drawn from many walks of life and countries. The initial council includes members from Switzerland, UK, Singapore, Philippines, USA, Ireland and Spain. The President is a Geneva-based lawyer (Me. Kooger), Jacques Gay is Vice President, assisted by Michel Bornet, Treasurer and Albert Muller, Executive Secretary. Neither Michel nor Albert are registered Council Members.
As you know, Vassula does not receive any remuneration for her TLIG activities. This same principle applies to all members of the Foundation Council and associated TLIG executives. Only professional outsourced help such as an accountant, an auditor etc. are paid from foundation funds. The legal capital, necessary for the creation of a foundation in Switzerland, has been provided by donations.
The Foundation’s Mission:
The Foundation has been established by Vassula:

La Vraie Vie en Dieu
Wahres Leben in Gott
La Verdadera Vida en Dios
(k) to raise funds:
- to enable the Foundation to achieve its objectives,

As our Founder, Vassula will always be closely involved with her Foundation's activities.
