The award, given for the first time this year, was received by WISE for its innovative philanthropic projects and quality of services that contribute to Geneva’s recognition.The jury awarded WISE with the “Innovation Award 2012″ for its innovative vision of philanthropy, excellent skills and the development of a personalized offer for donors.

In order to choose amongst the nominees, the CCIG was sensitive to the ethical dimension of WISE’s commitment to the professionalization of philanthropy and its privileged relationship with individuals, families and foundations wishing to engage in a philanthropic project.”This award is both a recognition for our work and for our vision of the philanthropic engagement that we have defended in the past nine years. Since the beginning, we have been pioneers in our field and we’ve continued to innovate in order to meet the new needs of donors. We hope that this award is as much a recognition of what we achieved in the past as a promise for the future,” explains Etienne Eichenberger, executive director of WISE.
The 9th EVPA Annual Conference will take place on 26-27 November 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Further information will be soon available.
