How to make A donation










Together, let's engage the future. Join us on this journey and let your generosity be the catalyst for change.


Transparent management

Donations can be made to the Institute or to one of the two foundations that support the Graduate Institute, share its values and are committed to its success. Those foundations enjoy non-profit status, so donations made to them are tax-exempt to varying degrees, depending on national legislation.

Donors will receive a donation certificate. For gifts above CHF 5’000, donors will be mentioned on our website with their permission.


The “Fondation pour l’étude des relations internationales en Suisse” (Foundation for the Study of International Relations in Switzerland, FERIS) was established in 1957 by Jacques Freymond to raise funding that is managed independently from the Institute but in the Institute’s interests.

The Friends of the Graduate Institute, Geneva, Inc.

Created in 2010 to support the Institute’s projects, this foundation took over from FERIS America. Like its predecessor, its donations are tax-exempt (501 (c) (3) status).
