Migros puts about 1% of revenue back into society. The Migros Culture Percentage supports a wide range of projects in the areas of education (Club School), culture, leisure, sport and social affairs.
Projects based in the cantons of Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Schwyz, Uri and Zug can apply for funding using this web form. Applications must be submitted at least six weeks before the date of the event or project start.
Please note our guidelines and funding criteria.
We support only organisations / institutions that are not self-sustaining, are non-profit-making, or are not commercial ventures.
We support projects and institutions that can demonstrate a need for financing, can present an appropriate budget, and can guarantee that the funds received will be used appropriately.
Recipients will be eligible for funding only once per calendar year.
Funding is not renewed automatically for annually recurring projects. Their validity, status, and scope need to be examined each year afresh.
We support exclusively projects in the areas of culture, social issues, leisure and sport. All these areas are treated equally.
We support exclusively projects in the market area of Migros Lucerne, which comprises the cantons of Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Schwyz, Uri and Zug. All regions within the market area of Migros Cooperative Lucerne receive commensurate levels of funding.
We support projects that could not be realised without our help. We are especially open to getting involved in new, unconventional ventures and projects that promote diversity internally (e.g. through composition, structures) and externally (e.g. through partnerships, topics).
