Businesses

We offer a range of ways for your business to get involved with Swiss Solidarity and support our various fundraising activities.

Donations

Your business can support us by making a one-time donation to the fundraising event of your choosing. That donation will help fund humanitarian projects for your favourite cause. You may also let Swiss Solidarity allocate your donation to projects meeting the most pressing needs.

Sponsorships

 By becoming a Swiss Solidarity sponsor, your business will help cover our organisation’s operating expenses, enabling us to launch innovative projects to support humanitarian causes in Switzerland and so much more. Your business may also partner with one of our organisation’s specific developments or areas of intervention, be it linked to your line of business or not.

Matching Gift Programme

The Matching Gift Programme allows your business and its employees to support Swiss Solidarity as a team. The programme helps position your business as a responsible employer and lets your employees take part in the humanitarian projects you wish to support. The concept is simple: for every donation your employees make, your business matches the donation or tops it up with any amount you choose.

If you like, we can create a customised donation form for your business with a logo and direct online access for donations. A range options are available for customising the fundraiser and promoting it through your company intranet. Your business will then receive a list of donations made by its employees for such purposes as matching their donations.

Customer Loyality Programme

Offer your customers the opportunity to convert their collected bonus points into donations. You can collect „points“ for a current or a permanent fundraising campaign on your platform. These „points“ can then be transferred regularly as a donation in Swiss francs to Swiss Solidarity’s bank account.

Feel free to contact us for any additional information you might require.

Keystone

Keystone

 

One picture often says more than a thousand words. Thanks to the partnership with the internationally operating Swiss picture agency Keystone, Swiss Solidarity has free and rapid access to recent pictures at any time. 

The Keystone picture agency takes a Swiss view of our country and the world. A team of 20 full-time photographers throughout Switzerland as well as international partner agencies ensure that no current event is missed. As the largest picture agency in Switzerland, Keystone has an almost unending store of material on Swiss social history (around 11 million archive images).

 

Swisscom

Swisscom

A national fundraising day is unthinkable without the means of Swisscom: In six regional fundraising centers, provided by Swisscom as well, between 120 and 150 phone lines are in use. This meant that, at the Tsunami’s fundraising day, over 70’000 calls were managed. On fundraising days, this service is free of charge.

The internet as a means of communication is vital for Swiss Solidarity, too. Therefore, Swisscom supports Swiss Solidarity’s web presence year after year with a considerable contribution. Swisscom (formerly PTT) has been an abiding partner for Swiss Solidarity for over sixty years.

SRG SSR

SRG SSR alt

Swiss Solidarity originated in 1946 from a radio show in western Switzerland – the first fundraising campaign was for the benefit of the orphans of World War II. The idea became more and more successful, and in 1983, Swiss Solidarity was granted the status of a foundation initiated by the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation SRG. Today, Swiss Solidarity is a foundation that raises funds for humanitarian relief projects and works with the SRG SSR.

On national solidarity and fundraising days, Swiss Solidarity demonstrates just what is meant by «idée suisse»: The solidarity and support of Switzerland’s entire population. This is only possible because the SRG SSR idée suisse supports Swiss Solidarity with its free broadcastings. Swiss Solidarity itself is – with a few exceptions – not a relief organization, but rather a solidarity network, cooperating with 25 relief organizations.

Additionally, the company’s entities SRF, RTS, RTR, RSI are all represented in the foundation board.
