Invest in the future

Since 1946, the Pestalozzi Children's Village in Trogen in Appenzell has served as a flagship of Switzerland's commitment to peace and has improved the chances for a better future of half a million children worldwide. Corporate support has played a central role from the outset. From volunteer work to donations in kind and long-standing partnerships, companies in Switzerland make a substantial contribution to helping children everywhere in the world to better exploit their potential.

Showing commitment, promoting peace

Responsibility towards society and the environment are contributing factors in deciding the positioning and success of a company. As a partner of the Pestalozzi Children's Foundation, you confirm that you also wish to tackle global problems in addition to the challenges in your core business. This benefits you in different ways:

  • You invest in the most important resource of the future – children.
  • You create credible social objectives with which your employees can identify, thus laying the foundation for a motivated team and satisfied stakeholders.
  • You promote intercultural understanding and social skills for a more peaceful global market.
  • Your company supports the values that are entrenched in Swiss society: 90% aided awareness. (Barometer 2016 for Swiss fundraising, donations and image)
  • You present yourself to the public as a company with an understanding of social and future-relevant topics.

We would be delighted if you would support us – and thus children in Switzerland and worldwide. We offer you cooperation programmes that are tailored to individual requirements. A successful partnership starts with an open dialogue. We would be happy to take the time to get to know you and your objectives and to find the best solution for your company.


Support options

Child sponsorship

You can support a specific project or help to support a house in the Children's Village for a mutually agreed period. In this way, you can dedicate long-term support to the things that matter to you. We will provide you with regular and transparent information about developments and progress and offer you materials you can use in your corporate communications.


With a multi-year commitment, you can promote flexibility and fast action to ensure a peaceful future: you become a member of our partner network, are given direct insight into our work, engage in the discussion of global topics with experts and are given opportunities for actively involving all stakeholders.

Promotion partner

Are you celebrating an anniversary, taking part in a trade fair or planning a sales campaign for a limited period? Make use of the opportunity to tell the public and your employees about your social commitment and donate a percentage/fixed amount per sold item, tombola ticket or remission of charges to the Pestalozzi Children's Foundation.

Other forms of cooperation

Apart from a partnership, there are countless ways for your company and your employees to make a contribution. For example, your employees can collect money for a topic close to their hearts, and your company can double the amount that is donated. This will improve the motivation of your employees and strengthen your reputation as a responsible company with a social conscience.

You can also help us with donations in kind, by purchasing our Christmas cards or by hosting our containers for collecting clothes. Whatever your idea – we will gladly take the time to discuss it with you and help you with its implementation.

Has this aroused your interest? We look forward to hearing from you!
