It All Depends on Your Support
The PanEco Foundation does not receive any government funding whatsoever and is entirely dependent on private donations and contributions from related organisations.
It is only through years of generous support from donors that the foundation is able to plan, develop and implement its diverse projects over the long-term. We also receive support from related organisations that participate in setting up and running certain projects. It is always easier to find start-up finance for a new project than to secure funds to cover the running cost of an existing one.
Between the start and successful conclusion of a project there is an important phase in which the project must be made to stand on its own two feet. This critical period demands patience, instinct and the trusting support of donors.
The financial and substantive development of projects is reported in the annual financial statement and performance report. The PanEco Foundation is regulated by the federal oversight body for foundations and since September 2006 has been granted the ZEWO seal of quality. Donations made to the PanEco Foundation are tax deductible in all cantons of Switzerland.
