On the first of September 2022, the Limmat Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary at the Lake Side Restaurant in Zurich. The team of the Limmat Foundation presented a varied program to 220 invited guests. Donors, mediators and local partners were involved. Additionally, the Limmat Foundation’s image film was shown. Music from the African band “Ma belle chérie” gave a special note to the event. In her welcoming speech, the President, Elisabeth András, expressed her gratitude to the sponsor Bordier & Cie and all other sponsors for their contribution.
During a panel discussion, various donors as well as intermediaries reported on how their relationship with the Limmat Foundation started and described their motives for the collaboration. They also explained how the Limmat Foundation supported them to realize their personal philanthropic projects.
A special highlight of the evening was the presence of the Limmat Foundation’s local partners, who had come from Colombia, India and Kenya. An interview took place with each local partner, combined with short project videos. The goal was to give the guests an understanding regarding the cooperation of the Limmat Foundation with its local partners and the added value for the beneficiaries within the projects.
After the official program, all guests were invited to an Apéro Riche, which offered a good opportunity for a personal exchange. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Limmat Foundation has selected three anniversary projects so that those in need can also benefit from the jubilee. For more information about the anniversary projects and the donation account, please have a look into the flyer. Thank you very much for your financial support!
