Culture Percentage and sponsorship in Valais

Two acrobats

Find out more about our voluntary commitment through the Migros Culture Percentage and various sponsorship activities, into which we channel a fixed proportion of our yearly turnover.

From the sailing association to classical music

The Migros Culture Percentage was one of Migros founder Gottlieb Duttweiler’s great humanist ideas, and was entered into the company statutes in 1957. Migros upholds this unique approach and the corresponding values as proudly now as it did in years gone by. 

Thanks to our grants, our cooperative is committed to the people of Valais. Each year, we support some 500 projects and events from Lower Valais to Upper Valais. Our commitment always comes from the heart, whether it’s for fundraising dinners, concerts, choral festivals, scout camps, sports events or social projects.
