Corporate social responsibility and philanthropy are sound business practices and should ideally be institutionalized as an integral part of a company‘s mission. It is our goal to join forces with our sponsors; to partner with them in developing or broadening their philanthropic strategies, which help give them a powerful competitive edge. Becoming an AICZ Sponsor will demonstrate that you are playing a leadership role in facilitating social problem-solving on a local scale by connection with AICZ’s charity activities. Showing such corporate citizenship serves as a powerful link between you and the clientele you serve. Additionally, Corporate Sponsors receive a discounted AICZ membership fee for their employees.
American International Club of Zurich Overview:
The American International Club of Zurich, founded in 1957 (as the American Club of Zurich) provides a forum for members who share an interest in American/Canadian culture and/or language but live in Switzerland to meet individuals from the Swiss international community.
Over the years, “Ex-pats” from many nations have been coming to Zurich for various reasons that include international assignments, relocation, marriage, or one might say, destiny. The AICZ is here to provide its members with a smooth transition and integration into the community. In addition, our club, through its volunteers, organizes events that enable its members to fully benefit from and enrich the experience in our host country, beautiful Switzerland.
In the process, our members establish a camaraderie and spirit of fun as they profit from creative ideas of both new and more established members. The purpose of the AICZ is to promote “Fellowship, Friendship, Service” while bringing English-speaking people of all nations together.
Our membership consists of a mix of long term members and members that may only be in Switzerland for a short business assignment. Membership provides discounted event entrance including other benefits as obtained for our members by the club.
We organize a mixture of American events and Swiss events. Every 3rd Friday of the month we have a TGIF in central Zurich. Two of our signature events are Fourth of July and a Winter Party (where we book a Zurich club for an evening of dining and dancing). In addition to our social events, our charity committee plans events to raise funds for a Swiss charity.
We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss a sponsorship relation with you at your earliest convenience.
