250 fundraising appeals in 73 years
Our success story began 73 years ago. On 26 September 1946 Swiss Solidary conducted its first campaign to raise money for children suffering from the effects of the war. Many years have since passed, during which the organization has developed and changed beyond recognition.
But some things have remained constant: the appeals for donations following major disasters abroad and in Switzerland, the untiring support for people in difficult circumstances or in need of urgent help, and exemplary cooperation with our partners such as SRG SSR, Swisscom, Swiss Post (for several decades), Keystone, Privatradios pro Glückskette and above all with our 26 partner NGOs providing aid abroad and over one hundred social institutions providing assistance in Switzerland.
