Fundraising – 
achieving the greatest possible impact

Sufficient funding is needed to optimally support children with cancer and their parents, to advance important projects and to stand up for their interests. Childhood Cancer Switzerland relies on private donations and external project funding to finance its work.

Every donation counts – however small or large. It is our goal to make the greatest possible impact for children with cancer and their families with the money entrusted to us. This includes improving the chances of survival and the quality of life, optimal follow-up care and equal opportunities for all long-term survivors. Other important aims are better legal framework conditions for those affected and an increasing awareness among the population of the major challenges in the field of childhood cancer. As a young organisation that is still relatively unknown, Childhood Cancer Switzerland needs to actively raise funds to have sufficient resources to finance its projects and support its member organisations.

People and organisations that support our work

Solidarity with children and adolescents with cancer and their families is immensely important. We are delighted with the many donations, large and small, that we receive from people and organisations who stand up for those affected by supporting our work. A central role is also played by foundations and companies that support us with project funding, individual donations or within the framework of long-term partnerships. And we are grateful for the financial commitment of our member organisations to certain projects and activities. We would like to take this opportunity of thanking them all for their incredible support. Here, you can find an overview of projects realised for the benefit of Childhood Cancer Switzerland:
