UBS and its employees are involved in numerous projects that benefit the community in Switzerland. Our volunteering program and fundraising activities support and empower people, projects and organizations in the areas of education and entrepreneurship as well as the environment, societal issues and culture. We offer all employees in Switzerland the opportunity to take part in over 100 charitable activities covering every part of the country. UBS provides two paid workdays per year for participation in these activities.

Our common goal is to make a meaningful contribution to our communities all across our home market and to shaping Switzerland's future.
