- support the diffusion and the republication of the works of the writer.
- support critical translations and work, particularly through conferences.
- help with the creation of spectacles drawn from Ramuz's work.
- encourage French literary creation and Swiss writers of the French language
The foundation also presents a tri-annual Poetry Prize, the 'Prix de poésie'.
