How to participate?

The most direct way to assist the Foundation is to make a financial donation which will be used to support the projects (see below for bank accounts information). It is possible to specify which Objective you would like to see the donation spent on (if available). If not available, the donation will be used to support any current project. We will keep you informed, so you know how and were your donation is used.

By Swiss Law, the Three Valleys Foundation is tax exempt, as are the donations or turnover.
Any profits resulting from the activities (such as boutique, sales, etc.) must, by law, stay within the framework of the Foundation and will be reinvested in our projects. The Swiss Government regulators will carry out a financial audit every year of The Three Valleys Foundation.

Your donations will go directly to the projects for the communities.
There are no middlemen.
Our team is composed mainly of volunteers interested in our ideals.
