If you pay tax in Switzerland, you may be able to deduct donations to the ICRC. The annual minimum and the amount of reduction vary from canton to canton.
The ICRC is a Swiss international organization, so if you do not pay tax in Switzerland your donation to the ICRC will probably not be tax-deductible. That is the case, for instance, if you pay taxes in Australia, France, the United Kingdom or the United States. Those countries do not allow their taxpayers to offset donations to foreign organizations against tax. If you pay tax in another country, please contact the tax authorities for further information.
The use of the ICRC logo is always a little complicated. It is very important that our emblem continue to serve its primary purpose, which is to be a visible manifestation – in situations of armed conflict – of the protection provided by the Geneva Conventions.
For that reason, you can only use our logo on your website (or anywhere else, including on printed matter, clothing, etc.) if you have our express permission in writing. To avoid any misunderstandings, please inform us of your intentions in advance, submitting a brief description of your project. If no agreement has been set up between us, we reserve the right to demand that you immediately remove our logo from your website.
For more information, please see our Guidelines on the use of the Red Cross emblem and the name and logo of the ICRC for fundraising purposes.
If you prefer, you can also make your donation by bank transfer or cheque.
