Social commitment in place of flowers
As an alternative to wreaths and flowers, you may also request that a charitable organisation be supported in memory of the person who has passed away instead. By making an in memoriam donation to the Foundation aha! Swiss Allergy Centre, you are giving hope to those with allergies and intolerances. You are sending a signal in terms of prevention and health promotion and supporting our commitment to the well-being and interests of allergy sufferers.
The person who has passed away may already have expressed the wish that an in memoriam donation be made to our foundation or that you as the surviving family members opt for social commitment in place of flowers. There are two ways in which in memoriam donations can be made:
Note in the obituary
- Give our donation account number in the obituary/funeral leaflet.
"In place of flowers, you can make a donation in memory of first name family name to the Foundation aha! Swiss Allergy Centre, Post Office account 30-11220-0 or IBAN CH07 0900 0000 3001 1220 0, giving the first and family names of the person in memory of whom the donation is being made."
- Notify us of the name of the person who has passed away and the address of the bereaved family either by e-mail or by telephone at +41 31 359 90 00.
We are grateful for any donation and will notify you of the full amount received.
Collection at the funeral service
You can arrange for a collection to be made at the funeral service on behalf of the Foundation aha! Swiss Allergy Centre. The collected money can then be transferred to our donation bank account by yourself or the church administration. Please give the name of the person who has passed away and the address of the bereaved family so that we can confirm receipt of the donation and express our gratitude.
