By creating its sponsorship fund, Genève Aéroport assumes its societal responsibility by supporting charitable, humanitarian and social projects in Switzerland and abroad.
A cause for which this fund will be allocated is defined each year.
The uniqueness of this sponsorship fund lies in its method of selection since the projects are submitted to the vote of Genève Aéroport employees who choose three associations, all of which work for the chosen cause.
However, this year, following the crisis situation caused by the pandemic, which has affected thousands of people and families in Switzerland, the entire 2020 sponsorship fund consisting of 75’000 CHF has been donated to Swiss Solidarity.
This institution, through its « Coronavirus » emergency appeal, collaborates with aid organisations in Switzerland, including Caritas Switzerland and the Swiss Red Cross, in order to provide immediate support to those most affected by the pandemic in the sectors of health, economics and social assistance.
The donations provide financial support for setting up aid for people affected by the coronavirus and for those who help them, for people in distress following this pandemic but also food aid and basic necessities as well that all initiatives that allow and promote solidarity within society.
In addition to the allocation of this sponsorship fund, Genève Aéroport continues to support institutions such as the Geneva Red Cross, which provides assistance to people in difficulty living in Geneva, through numerous actions.
