International fundraising With Swiss Donors
Switzerland, with its long-standing tradition of philanthropy, presents a thriving and diverse landscape for charitable organisations seeking to make a lasting impact. As a prosperous and politically stable nation, the Swiss populace demonstrates a strong propensity for generosity, creating a wealth of opportunities for international fundraising endeavours. However, navigating the complex legal and regulatory frameworks in Switzerland can pose significant challenges, potentially leading to financial pitfalls and compliance issues for inexperienced charities.
To mitigate these risks and facilitate seamless integration into the Swiss philanthropic ecosystem, partnering with the Chapel & York Swiss Foundation is an invaluable asset. By establishing a fund under their umbrella, your charity benefits from an immediate presence in Switzerland, without the need to establish a separate legal entity. This accelerates your ability to capitalise on fundraising prospects while ensuring full compliance with Swiss regulations.
Moreover, the Chapel & York Swiss Foundation’s extensive expertise and wide-ranging network provide tailored support, enabling your charity to unlock the full potential of Swiss fundraising opportunities. With their guidance, you can foster lasting relationships with individual and institutional donors, and navigate the intricacies of Swiss tax-efficient giving, maximising the impact of your charitable efforts.
Chapel & York can handle all the regulatory, banking, donation processing, and technical issues involved in fundraising in Switzerland, allowing you to raise funds without any worries.
With our expert support, you can focus on your core mission while we handle the details.
