A strong solidarity pact
Since 1978 the Benefactors' Association has supported and promoted the efforts of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation to help people with spinal paralysis. The funds accrued through contributions from members form what is financially the most important basis for the comprehensive and integrated network of services provided by this solidarity network, which is unique worldwide.
Benefactors and, depending on the level of membership, family members living in the same house are eligible to receive a one-off benefit of CHF 200,000 quickly and without any undue complication in the event of paralysis resulting from an accident and if they become permanently wheelchair-dependent.
This exclusive solidarity pact between the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation and its sister organisation, the Benefactors' Association, has made the vision of holistic rehabilitation for para and tetraplegics a possibility for more than 30 years.
