Donate and Support
A sincere thank you to long-time supporter and emeritus Board member, Donald G. Tritt who helped our 2016 year-end campaign become a big success with his $25,000 match. Thank YOU as well for contributing.
The Swiss Center of North America is a 501c3 non-profit organization so we work diligently to raise money and respect each donated dollar.
At the same time we continue to be focused on our mission of preserving and sharing our Swiss heritage. Key to that is our award-winning Library and Archives where we collect the stories of individuals and long-ago groups before these pieces are lost and with them, part of our collective Swiss heritage is lost, too.
Don and I were talking about why he gives.
Don said: “I give to support our wonderful programing as well as keeping the insurance paid and to the driveway plowed. Some might think helping pay those monthly bills isn’t as exciting as supporting Fahnenschwingen* lessons.
But we need to strengthen our operating base. Will other friends stand with me to continue to build that base? I believe they will.”
So do I. Please unite with Don and donate today to reach his $25,000 match. Donations before the end of the year will become part of this dollar for dollar match.
Annual giving is the cornerstone of giving options enabling us to pay for operating costs.
- The Swiss Root+s Society is an annual giving membership commitment.
