Partnership models and philanthropy

We offer a range of partnership models and opportunities for sponsorship and social commitment. Be inspired.

Official partnership: tailored strategic cooperation

An official partnership is the strongest and closest model of partnership with the SRC. As an official partner, you support a humanitarian area suited to you or a service in Switzerland as well as the general work of the SRC. We offer tailored, strategically sound, comprehensive cooperation. In return, you can incorporate the partnership in your communications and position your company in terms of the shared social commitment.

Helsana video as an example of an SRC partnership: Helsana helps to ensure that as many people as possible can provide first aid.

Project partner: targeted aid

As a project partner, you support the SRC financially in humanitarian projects lasting several years, both in Switzerland and abroad. This gives you a targeted insight into an issue. We also draw attention to philanthropic commitment with a project partnership.

Promotional partner: sales-dependent donations

As a promotional partner, you carry out short-term sales promotions with the SRC, providing your specialist expertise. The SRC receives a certain percentage / fixed amount for each item sold or benefits from a waiver of fees.
