Donations instead of gifts

Presents make you feel good. A good deed makes you feel at peace. With a Christmas donation customized to your requirements, make your customers, partners and employees aware of your meaningful and sustainable commitment towards society.

Donate as a company

Make an impact as a company with your social engagement and improve the quality of life of the disadvantaged people in our partner countries. Not only will your action impact lives positively, it will also bring you the goodwill of your collaborative partners and the general public.

Cause-connected marketing

Link your product sales with your corporate donations to Helvetas. Your buyers feel good about your fantastic products. In addition, they get a sense of satisfaction, in the knowledge that by purchasing something from your company, they are directly contributing to a bigger cause.

Matching gifts

Encourage your employees and customers to donate to a cause that can make an impact on the basic needs in life, education or the climate. Let them decide what they want to contribute to and how much. Match up their donation – and watch the change you create together in your personal and professional capacities!

Together, we can make the world a better place for all!

Whether it’s about bringing permanent access to clean drinking water and improved public health, or about enabling young girls and women to pursue their dreams for schooling, providing young adults through vocational education better job perspectives, or helping farmers in vulnerable communities to become more resilient to climate change, together we can make the world a better place for all.  

With your support, we can lay the foundations for a self-determined life of dignity for the disadvantaged people across the 30 countries we work in.

«I want to actively contribute to improving the water supply in our community. Therefore, I joined four years ago the training program (provided by Helvetas) to become a well repairman. Ever since, I’m employed by the community and thanks to the additional income I can afford to send my children to school.»
