Funding

How much does the Foundation receive, who donates it and where does it go?

Every year, more than 2,000 children participate in projects organised by the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation in Switzerland. Approximately 120,000 children, teaching professionals and parents benefit from our projects abroad. But where does the money come from? How is it used?

How the Foundation is funded

Two-thirds of the funding used for projects run by the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation is received in the form of private donations. The remaining third of our financial requirements is covered by contributions from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (DEZA).

Financial reserves

The support we receive from private donations fluctuates throughout the year. The Foundation keeps financial reserves to ensure that we are able to continue implementing projects for children and youths. These funds are invested in a sustainable, conservative manner, i.e. with the lowest possible risk.

Use of donations

Your donations reach us

The Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation makes every effort to keep administrative expenses to a minimum and to ensure that the largest part of your donation arrives exactly where it is most needed: our projects for children and youths.

No projects without administration

We rely on gaining new donors on an ongoing basis and keeping them updated about our projects. Every year, more than 2,000 children meet at the Pestalozzi Children’s Village in Trogen, Appenzell. This meeting place, its houses and its beautiful environment must be maintained and supported.
Our continued efforts mean that we are able to use 76 per cent (*) of all donations received to fund our projects. Just 24 per cent is reserved for fundraising, donor relations and administration.

* Average established over the past five years (2010 to 2014).
