Bequests, donations, life insurance

If you believe that education is the basis to individual and collective development and intend to hand down these values to future generations, be aware that you can bequeath or give all or a part of your effects to Aide et Action. You can also nominate our organisation to benefit from your life insurance contract. You do not have to be wealthy – every single gesture is essential.

Aide et Action, as a non-profit organisation under Swiss law, is exonerated from transfer duties (in cantons where they exist). This means that the entirety of effects received are dedicated to the organisation’s mission.

Another way to give

  • BEQUESTS

    Bequests will allow you to support, in the future, our association without divesting yourself of your effects until the day of your death.

  • LIFE INSURANCE

    Life insurance is a simple, quick and efficient means of transferring, after death, capital and its interests.

  • DONATIONS

    Donations consist in transferring, in the course of life, movable or immovable property. You can give the whole, bare ownership or the usufruct of ownership.

« Having no child or close relative I made my provisions early, as soon as I retired. Education is a topic that I care a lot about, and Aide et Action is engaged in multiple projects in India, a country I have visited and to which I feel very close. I met Aide et Action’s Asset Manager, with whom contact went smoothly. I followed a similar approach with another organisation and then discussed with my notary. As I feel closer to Aide et Action, I chose it and recently updated my will. To me, the end of life is no taboo. I would rather anticipate it as much as possible, as it allows me to remain serene and choose what will be made of my works and property after my death. »

« As the age of retirement is approaching, I am taking time to reflect upon what I have accomplished and what I will leave behind. My wife and I have worked hard all our life, we have succeeded in saving and buying a house as well as an apartment. Our children have their own life – we wish, of course, to leave them something but we have also contacted several associations, including Aide et Action, to get information on the different options to give a part or the whole of our assets. There is a wealth of possible approaches, and it is in fact a lot simpler than we thought. »

« I called Aide et Action last year to get more information about bequests and donation modalities with the association. I was warmly welcomed and I obtained all the answers to my questions. I have since made my provisions. »
