E.O. Kilcher-Foundation: Financial contribution to Swiss returnees in order to bridge emergency situations and to help reconstruct a new existence.


The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad administrates the Kilcher-Fonds, a fund out of which in some cases a small assistance in the form of a credit without interest can be granted for a reintegration project (e.g. winter clothes, intensive language course). The return to Switzerland has to be recent, no longer than a year ago.


Please note that the financial assistance is subsidiary to the Social Services welfare benefit and / or unemployment benefit.


Application forms can be obtained  at the Legal Service of the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad.
