We welcome and need your financial support.
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.
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 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.
Please join a select group of proud Swiss by becoming a sustaining member of our Swiss Roots Society.
We are growing our Swiss Roots Society to 100 people, organizations or businesses who make an annual gift of $1,000 or more without restriction.
Join by pledging to donate $1,000 a year for three to five years and build our financial foundation.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
