Giving in Switzerland unaffected by economic crisis

Figures recently published by Swiss charity quality mark ZEWO this month, suggest that the economic crisis did not affect giving in Switzerland in 2009 as heavily as expected, as income to its members is holding steady.

Around CHF 2.83 billion (£1.84 billion/$2.87 billion) was donated to the 457 ZEWO member charities in 2009, an 8% increase on the CHF 2.62 billion donated in 2008.  

Individual giving is up 6.4% overall with regular donations holding steady.  Interestingly, legacy income is up 40% on the previous year to CHF 54 million, perhaps reflecting the marketing carried out by the bigger charities over recent years.  

Company giving and sponsoring is holding steady at CHF 51 million compared to CHF 49 million in 2008.
