Postage stamp fund

Anyone who buys a special stamp with a surcharge is contributing to a good cause: a portion of the money directly supports well-known organizations such as Pro Patria and Pro Juventute. Further money feeds into the postage stamp fund. Swiss Post uses this fund to promote various cultural and social projects, often with a focus on youth work: architectural culture education for children and young people in Lower Engadine by Creacumün Target not accessible, the Hommage2021Target not accessible exhibition on the occasion of 50 years of women’s suffrage, the NCBI prevention projectTarget not accessible on sexual assaults among young people or the raising of awareness of sustainable consumption Target not accessibleby the Biovision Foundation.

These supposedly small amounts are making a big impact: in 2020, around 100,000 Swiss francs went to seven non-profit organizations. More than 200 projects have already received money from the postage stamp fund over the past 30 years.

2 x Christmas

Tens of thousands of parcels for “2 x Christmas”

“2 x Christmas” is a charitable campaign conducted jointly by the Swiss Red Cross (SRC), Coop, SRG SSR and Swiss Post. During the Christmas period, the public donates food and everyday items. Swiss Post transports these items free of charge to the SRC logistics center in Wabern (Bern), where they are sorted by Swiss Post staff and SRC volunteers before being distributed to those in need in Switzerland and abroad.

Santa Claus campaign

Santa Claus gets a helping hand from Swiss Post

More than 20,000 letters written by children for Santa Claus arrive at their destination every year. And, in most cases, there is also a reply – thanks to the Swiss Post employees who give Santa Claus a helping hand in the run-up to the big day.

Thousands of imaginative lists and greetings arrived at Swiss Post last winter. With children full of fresh ideas, Santa’s Swiss Post helpers can look forward to receiving even more mail in the years to come.

Children can take part by sending their drawing or letter in an envelope franked with a pretty stamp and addressed to Santa Claus.
