 If you are in a position to donate a large amount – maybe once, maybe occasionally, maybe on a regular basis – you can substantially increase our capacity to help people affected by conflict – quickly and efficiently. They need security and solidarity, which is exactly what you represent. Find out more.

Recognition and support for our major donors

A large financial contribution represents a commitment on your part. In recognition of that commitment, the ICRC will:

  • invite you to special events and briefings;
  • send you personalized updates on the work that your donations are making possible;
  • mention you by name in our annual report or other publications (for gifts over CHF 10,000 – but only if you give your permission, of course);
  • put you in touch with a dedicated team of ICRC staff who will answer your queries.

Make your philanthropy a regular event – become a Friend of the ICRC

Single, large donations give us a reserve from which we can fund rapid-response operations. Regular donations enable us to plan, to commit to helping the victims of conflict long-term.

The Friends of the ICRC are a group of individuals who have committed themselves to making large, regular donations – at least CHF 5,000 a year. Their support is a rock on which the ICRC can build its future. Find out more about the Friends of the ICRC.
