Update: COVID-19

June 5th, 2020


Dear friends,


Thank you so much to all of those who have come out to support us during these trying times. We are honoured and proud to say that our emergency COVID-19 fundraising efforts have resulted in an additional CHF 50'000 from private contributions.


We will be coordinating closely with Help Without Frontiers on how to best allocate these funds to alleviate the situation for those most in need. You can follow their daily efforts on our blog.


Thank you again.


Private Foundation for People in Need


Brodtbeck Philanthropy is a private nonprofit foundation based in Switzerland. The foundation’s aim is to help people in need. The main focus lies in helping children and providing them with an education in order to reach a sustainable improvement in living conditions for them and their families. Brodtbeck Philanthropy mainly supports selected aid organizations that operate on location.

Urgent! Please help us here (COVID-19)



The Brodtbeck Philanthropy Foundation helps people in need worldwide.  


We base our support on whether projects are addressing emergent needs such as famine, disease, abuse, poverty, combined with a possible absence of infrastructure, aid organizations active in the area, and places of refuge. 


In the ideal case the supported projects can be sustained by the community, are sensible both ecologically and economically, and are free of religious influence.


Safeguarding children is important to us, as they are the first to suffer as a consequence of maltreatment. They are defenseless and prone to exploitation of every kind. Furthermore, education and support of children and adolescents increase the prospects of entire communities.  


We support Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that provide development aid and emergency relief. We seek out organizations that have a level of direct access to the people they support. Donations act 100% on location, with minimal administrative expenses. Decisions are taken rapidly, efficiently and in a straightforward manner. We act based on personal knowledge of the conditions on the ground, as well as on information from our trusted contacts and local communities. We are also careful to respect local customs, authorities and laws.


As an organization we discretely provide a link between donors and institutions that share our goals.


In Switzerland, due to our foundation's nonprofit aims, voluntary donations to Brodtbeck Philanthropy qualify as tax deductables.
