Contribution to the common good
As a leading player in the Swiss healthcare market, Galenica is committed at all levels to patient welfare. In addition to this, we engage in various social projects and support non-profit organisations.
Since 2018, the Galenica Group has been the main partner of the “I care for you” crowdfunding platform. Through a focused commitment, Galenica can now help numerous projects get access to funds. The Swiss-based foundation was founded in 2015 and is the first Swiss crowdfunding platform for purely social and humanitarian projects. The platform enables non-profit organisations and individuals to raise funds online for a specific project in a simple, inexpensive way. Donors can see exactly how their donations are used. Each project is checked carefully by the foundation in advance for reliability and integrity. The project initiators receive professional advice and support during implementation. In addition, the foundation requires evidence that successful projects have actually been implemented.
In addition to this main commitment, Galenica also selectively supports other projects in the healthcare sector. Galenica Group companies also support social projects. Further information on the topic of social commitment can be found in the annual report 2020 (from page 48).
