Donate and Support


We welcome and need your financial support. 

Annual Giving
Annual giving is the fundraising cornerstone allowing us to pay for operating costs.

Swiss Roots Society
Our sustaining membership is called the Swiss Roots Society.  Become part of a special group of people who provide a $1,000 donation  or more annually. 

Matching Gift 

Many companies will match their employees’ contribution to the Swiss Center  of North America. Talk with your Human Resources staff and submit a matching gift form with your donation to the Swiss Center.  

Planned Giving  

Planned Gift Opportunities is a way for you to provide for the future of the Swiss Center. Estate provisions can be made through a will or trust, gifts of securities,  annuities, or beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan. E-mail President Beth Zurbuchen to learn more. Or call 608-527-6565.  

Endowment Gifts  Endowment gifts represent the donation of permanent assets to the Swiss Center  that are invested in funds whose annual returns serve as a sustainable  source of revenue. Examples of endowment gifts include cash, securities, charitable gift annuities, gifts through a will or bequest, life  insurance or a charitable trust. Investment managers may provide  consultation for such gifts.

Help us expand

We plan to start work this year to upgrade and remodel our lower level.  When complete, it will hold enhanced exhibition and  climate controlled archival spaces.  The Embassy of Switzerland in  Washington, D.C. has committed to giving us a $12,000 grant for this  project when we raise approximately $45,000.  Please contact Beth Zurbuchen  to discuss the project and your interest in fundraising for our portion of  the remodeling expenses.  Call 608-527-6565 or email at
