Frequently asked questions

Donations

Why do you collect funds from the public?

Private contributions are crucial to ensure our independence and the promptness of our interventions. They thus complement public grants, which are usually allocated to a specific project of limited duration and require a long process before being implemented. Regular private donations are particularly valuable to improve responsiveness in emergencies and to ensure the sustainability of our interventions.

How are my donations used?

For every 100 Swiss francs donated to FSD, 85 francs go to our field operations, 9 francs are used for fundraising activities and 6 francs are allocated to administration costs. In order to ensure full financial transparency, the organisation's complete and audited annual accounts are published each year in our annual report. The ZEWO label guarantees that FSD uses donations ethically and efficiently and the ISO 9001 certification attests the quality of the organisation's management.

How to deduct my donation from my tax return?

Your donations to FSD can be deducted from your tax return. We provide donation receipts every year in mid-February (for the previous fiscal year), by email. If you have any problem, please do not hesitate to contact our donor service (donors@fsd.ch or +41 22 562 41 92). Please inform us of any change of address: we need your full contact details in order to issue your donation certificate.

Is my online donation secure?

Online donations made on our website are processed through the DonorBox system, a secure payment processing platform for non-profit organisations.

I DON'T WANT TO MAKE AN ONLINE PAYMENT, HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOU?

Thank you for your support. You can make a bank transfer to the following account:
Recipient Fondation suisse de déminage (FSD)
Bank Crédit Suisse, Genève
IBAN CH70 0483 5081 8341 7100 0
Swift Code CRESCHZZ80A

how to change or stop my regular donation?

You can change the amount of your donation or terminate your commitment at any time by contacting our donor service by email at donors@fsd.ch or on +41 22 562 41 92.

DO YOU HAVE A DOOR-TO-DOOR CAMPAIGN ONGOING?

Yes, a door-to-door campaign is underway in several cities in French-speaking Switzerland. Our donor recruiters can be recognized by their badge with their name on it and their navy blue FSD jacket.

 

EMPLOYMENT & VOLUNTEERING

I WOULD LIKE TO BECOME A DEMINER, HOW CAN I DO THAT?

For standard demining positions, we recruit and train all of our teams from the local population in the intervention contexts. For expert demining positions, we only recruit professional deminers who have been trained in accordance with NATO standards and who can demonstrate at least 10 years of experience in the field. We do not offer demining training courses for international staff.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO AN INTERNSHIP AT FSD?

We occasionally recruit interns in our office in Geneva, particularly in communications and fundraising. All vacancies are published on our website: www.fsd.ch/fr/emplois

Are you looking for volunteers?

We are looking for volunteers for one-off projects. Calls for contributions are then published on social networks.

Our impact

In 2021, our deminers have cleared an area equivalent to half the city of Geneva. Discover our operations.
