Pennies from heaven - anything similar in Switzerland

Hi,

in the UK we had this scheme with my employer called Pennies from Heaven:

https://www.penniesfromheaven.co.uk/...its-of-scheme/


What is the Pennies from Heaven scheme?
Pennies from Heaven (PFH) is the UKs largest micro giving scheme for employees and pensioners. The scheme has raised over 280,000,000 pennies for over 265 charities. Quite simply employees / pensioners sign up once and from then on every payslip is rounded down to the nearest pound with the pennies donated to charity. If net pay was 850.34 then 34p would be donated. Donation is between 0-99p every time you are paid.


So it's an easy way to donate to charity as part of your payroll. and since your only giving a small amount each month most people sign up.

was wondering...

does anything like this exist here in Switzerland?

I would like to introduce this scheme in my company which employs over 4,000 people. do you think many swiss will object? The charity can be specified by the employer.

I dislike employer sponsored charity efforts. One is too often put under pressure to join in the scheme, forced to contribute to charities whose aims and practices one might not support.


Charitable contributions - how much, to whom - should be an individual decision.

you don't have to if you don't want to. it's a personal decision. you will be able to opt-in or opt-out.

just wanted to know if there was a similar company based in swiss.
