The goal of the LWF Endowment Fund is to ensure we can continue the good work the LWF has been doing since it was founded in 1947. The fund was set up in 1999 with a CHF 20 million target set for 2017. By the end of 2021, the value of the fund was CHF 15.’65 million. During the year, contributions to the endowment fund totaled CHF 30’498. In 2019 the fund distributed in total CHF 968’438 to LWF programs.
