Do you care about democracy and citizensā€˜ rights in Switzerland and throughout the world? Do you consider investing in the democratic and peaceful co-existence of our societies?

The Swiss Democracy Foundation supports projects that promote the knowledge and understanding for greater participation of citizens in the political process, democracy, tolerance and international understanding.

In order to develop and strengthen our foundation the Foundation needs a solid financial underpinning. Though there are good news: Sponsors in Germany have promised to donate the equal amount of Francs that are donated to the Swiss Democracy Foundation. In other words: Each donation made to the Swiss Democracy Foundation will be doubled (up to 1 million Swiss Francs).

You are also welcome to direct your donation to one of our thematic funds, projects or events.

Please talk to us about your possibilities to invest into a rich democratic culture and peaceful societies throughout the world.
