Giving Tuesday Now

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity, taking place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, and support for communities around the world. 

The communities in which our campuses are based have supported ZIS for over 50 years - now it's our turn to give back. Help us to support vulnerable people affected by COVID-19 in Adliswil, Kilchberg and Wädenswil by raising much-needed funds for local projects.

Local Community Projects

Funds raised between now and May 5 will help support the following local projects: 


View of the river Sihl in Adliswil

Purpose: integration of the children of asylum seekers in the area. Specifically:

  • Support for school materials for refugee children in public schools

  • Staff support for 6 special playgroups (70 children from 10 countries) for young refugee children


Kilchberg Church

Purpose: integration of the children of asylum seekers in the area. Specifically:

  • Financial support for daycare places for refugee families 

  • Covering costs for translators

  • Special training for the daycare staff regarding working with refugees


View of Seeplatz Wädenswil


Purpose: Support for the construction of a new public playground for all the community’s children (including ZIS families) at the Seeplatz Wädenswil (currently unable to be financed due to COVID-19 issues)





As part of this campaign we have teamed up with alumni Stefan Killen (Class of ‘82) and Robert Gottschalk (Class of ‘78), for a wonderful initiative called “Coronart”. They have designed a unique poster featuring 26 pieces of art contributed by artists from the class of 1973 -2018.
