Swiss Red Cross               

As a diverse humanitarian organization, the Swiss Red Cross operates in the fields of health, rescue, and social integration, as well as disaster response, reconstruction, and development cooperation. Many committed employees and volunteers focus on relieving human suffering, mostly in Switzerland, but also abroad.

1 The pre-selected non-profit organizations are domiciled in Switzerland and are known for their social commitment. Organizations are also selected on the basis of their tax status as non-profit organizations in the respective Swiss cantons in which they are domiciled (e.g. a non-profit organization domiciled in Zurich and recognized as a non-profit organization in the Canton of Zurich), as well as on recognition of the tax-deductibility of donations to the organization by the tax authority of the respective canton in which the organization is domiciled. Also note that although these non-profit organizations have been carefully selected by Credit Suisse, they are not legally or economically associated with CREDIT SUISSE (Switzerland) Ltd. (the "Bank"), and the Bank neither supervises nor controls their activities or investments.
