What your donation will be used for
You decide where and what you want to support: If you donate to projects in Switzerland, no money will go abroad. If you decide on one of our projects abroad, it will only be used there. If you don't state a donation purpose, the money will be used where we currently need the most funds. A small percentage of each donation also ensures that the Pestalozzi Children's Village in Trogen (AR) can be financed.
How much money is used for administration
In order to use the donations optimally, we keep the administrative effort as small as possible. For example, many of our employees work part-time. We show the exact figures in the annual report (available as PDF)
How the donations are collected
A large proportion of private donations still reach us via payment slip. Like many other aid organizations in Switzerland, we work together with the provider RaiseNow.
How we protect your identity
We treat your personal data as strictly confidential and only use it for the purpose of processing donations.
We answer more questions and answers on our Questions and Answers page.
