Serving the Community

The AIC Civic Concerns Committee is dedicated to making a difference and enriching people’s lives. Committee members like to get out in the community, make connections with grass roots charities and volunteer at fundraising events to give back to society and network with other club members. Serving as a conduit between companies and charities, we also connect our corporate members to charities in Geneva helping them build employee volunteerism and philanthropic programs.

The AIC Civic Concerns Committee is dedicated to making a difference and enriching people’s lives. We like to go out into the community, make connections with grass roots charities and volunteer at fundraising events to give back to society and network with other Club members and organizations. As part of its annual Civic Concerns program, the AIC identifies a local charity to support.

 

Our beneficiary in 2017 was Anouk Foundation in Geneva.  In this freezing cold weather, we’re so fortunate for people like Vanessa von Richter who works hard to warm hearts and brighten lives of young and old . . . by using Music and Art Therapy in orphanages, hospitals, nursing homes and special institutions.

 

Please look at the Anouk website www.anouk.org/en/home for more information and learn how you can support Anouk Foundation and brighten lives. 

 

SAVE THE DATE:  2 September 2018

Our next AIC Civic Concerns event is ESCA’s Paddle for Cancer Dragonboat races in the Jura mountains at the Lac de Joux. 

By supporting ESCA (English Speaking Cancer Association), they are able to continue offering cancer patients and their caregivers in Geneva their services and programs at no charge. 

Stay tuned to this page of our AIC website for more information.
