The new online donation magazine provides information about inspiring projects and offers tips on how to make online donations very easy
Lots of people are looking forward to the holidays, but not everyone can afford them. When you think of honeybees, you mostly think of beehives lined up in rows, but most people don’t know about the fate of wild honeybees threatened with extinction. Charitable organisations, such as the Schweizer Arbeiterhilfswerk and Freethebees, focus on concerns that, for many, are far removed from their everyday lives – but that might just be issues that they would like to support. StiftungSchweiz has launched the SpendenMagazin (donation magazine) to give more visibility to the variety of donation opportunities available. As well as insights in into the work of committed organisations, the new online magazine provides tips on the topic of donating.
‘The Swiss donate from the heart, and they donate a lot,’ says Peter Buss, editor and publisher of the SpendenMagazin and The Philanthropist. ‘There are lots of great organisations and projects that are not very well known, but are absolutely worth donors getting to know.’ The SpendenMagazin introduces them, while at the same time harnesses the power of an increasingly digital world, making it effortlessly easy to donate – for example, the magazine is linked with StiftungSchweiz’s fundraising platform. ‘If a reader finds an exciting project in the SpendenMagazin and wants to donate to it, the fundraising platform makes this possible immediately – and it’s easy and secure,’ explains Peter Buss. The SpendenMagazin is also accompanied by the fortnightly ‘Do Good’ newsletter.
