Philanthropy With AWC Basel
AWC Basel supports various local and international organizations through our fundraising efforts. One hundred percent of all money raised goes directly to our supported charities. Additionally, we work as hands-on volunteers at our local charity and organize charity and fundraising events. Please contact our President at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or for any questions you may have about our supported charities.
Currently, AWC Basel supports the following:
Each year at our Annual General Meeting, our members vote for a local Swiss charity to support for the upcoming club year. The majority of our fundraising and volunteer efforts throughout the year are focused on this chosen organization. We host a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for our organization of choice.
Our local charity for the 2020-2021 club year is Alterstagesstätte zum Lebenslauf, a day care center for seniors.
