Patrons of Asia Society Switzerland
As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generous donations of our Patrons. We are grateful for their ongoing support of our critical mission to foster Asia Competence and preparing Switzerland for a deeper and sustained engagement with Asia.
We deeply believe that only through increased Asia Competence and sustained engagement with Asia will Switzerland be able to continue to thrive in a multipolar world and play a constructive role in shaping the Asian Future.
At the heart of that commitment are our Patrons – a community of Asia-minded individuals who generously support our mission. Our Patrons meaningfully impact our core capacity to deliver on our mission, share our passion for Asia and our belief in the importance of fostering Asia Competence in Switzerland. Thanks to their donations, we can continue to build an Asia-informed and Asia-connected Swiss society. Our Patrons play an important role in the continuation and evolution of our work and enable us to plan confidently for the future and foster an Asia dialogue in Switzerland, promote mutual understanding and strengthen partnerships between Switzerland and Asia.
We would like to thank our Patrons for their generous and continued support of our work.

A Message from our Chairman
As Chairman of Asia Society Switzerland, I am very aware of the importance of our Patrons to afford us to truly be a society. The team and the Board are all profoundly grateful for your continued support.
It is always a great pleasure for me to meet our Patrons at our events and annual Jade Dinner and to hear your views on our plans and ambitions for Asia Society Switzerland. The committed support of our Patrons is an essential aspect of our organization. Your valuable input also enables us to develop new initiatives and broaden our scope towards increasing Asia Competence in Switzerland and beyond. Our Patrons are also Ambassadors who help us to awaken other people’s interest in Asia. Thank you for your manifold support and for encouraging others to join the Patron circle.
