Make a difference through philanthropy
Partner with us for greater humanity in Switzerland and around the world. Our aid projects meet high quality standards. We will put your donation to good use and report back to you in full transparency.
You can make a difference
We believe that the complex challenges of our time can only be resolved by working together. By partnering with us, you can make a lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable children, teenagers and adults.
We reach out to people who need support. Our priority sectors in Switzerland are health,
everyday support, social integration, migration, disaster relief and search and rescue. We work in close cooperation with our Red Cross partners in around 30 countries in health promotion and disaster preparedness. We also invest in the organizational development of our partners, so that they are better equipped to reach their goals. All our services and programmes pursue the 17 sustainable development goals set by the United Nations in its Agenda 2030.

Vulnerable people are the focus of our work. To help them, we can call on our extensive know-how and our international network. Read more about our priority sectors and the fundamental principles that guide our work.
