Rotary Districts of Switzerland and Liechtenstein Foundation, Zone 16B (RSS)

RSS: Recognized as a non-profit, tax deductible organization

The Rotary Districts of Switzerland and Liechtenstein Foundation  ("RSS") enables us all to make contributions tax deductible: Donations become even more attractive:

  •     RSS is an organization monitored and controlled by the Swiss Federal Supervisory Authority for Foundations
  •     The non-profit status and thus the tax deduction entitlement are recognised
  •     The foundation boards work on a voluntary basis. 100% of donations go to international and national projects and programs of Rotary and the Rotary Foundation
  •     Authorities, donors, and grantees can contact Rotarians from Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The RSS supplements the charitable funds and foundations of the clubs in the Districts 1980 and 1990.
