Migros Commitment brings together an impressive number of regional and nationwide operators from across the Migros Group as a single organisation. All these individual operators work in tandem on complementary fields and activities.
The Migros Culture Percentage is hosted half by the ten regional Migros cooperatives and half by the Federation of Migros Cooperatives. The institutions of the Migros Culture Percentage also include the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, the Migros Club School, the Monte Generoso rack railway, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and the four «im Grünen» parks.
The Migros Pioneer Fund operates on a national level and the Migros Aid Fund both nationally and internationally. Both come under the umbrella of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives.
The Cultural and Social Affairs Directorate of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives takes on the role of competence centre for Migros Commitment.

How we provide support
The Cultural and Social Affairs Directorate of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives decides on Migros’ social commitment on a national scale. Our topics and priorities reflect the latest trends and respond to a public or cultural need. Our modus operandi is agile and unbureaucratic, and we create solution-led, precise, effective programmes. We develop low-threshold proposals that are accessible to a wide audience, but also create targeted offers of support for operators and pioneers. In doing so, we help to transform society.
