Solidarity Actions

The SPG-Rytz group supports mutual assistance and cooperation projects that meet the needs of the impoverished sections of the population. This social role is inscribed in our company’s charter. In accordance with a well-established tradition, we actively participate in specific activities with well-defined goals and we establish direct contacts between the persons who manage those projects and those who stand to benefit from them.

The SPG-Rytz group’s social actions have become more diversified over time. In addition to the traditional New Year’s greeting cards, we have added active backing for selected projects in the humanitarian and environmental fields. Altogether, these activities form the root of an “effective solidarity” which, while it is relatively small in comparison to the scale of the needs, is heart-felt and efficient.


This phrase is inscribed in the SPG-Rytz group company’s charter. Seven fields of intervention have been designated as meeting the company’s core values. These fields include: disadvantaged children, health, sustainable development and environment, art and culture, social projects, education as well as sports and leisure.

Every year, the SPG-Rytz group contributes financially to projects that it feels have had a real impact for its beneficiaries. Our donations in Switzerland account for more than 50 percent of our available annual budget, and help a total of more than 50 beneficiaries.


  • Type of association: mostly small structures with which SOCIÉTÉ PRIVÉE DE GÉRANCE is able to make and maintain sustainable personalized contacts.
  • Projects aim  at helping underprivileged children in terms of health, education and ecology.
  • Entrepreneurial dimension: the associations, which must be located in Switzerland and registered in the companies register, must have been founded by one or more persons, independently, in the context of a personal or community project, in Switzerland or abroad.
