Partner with us

Our partners are a fundamental part of the work the International Blue Cross carries out on behalf of families, individuals and communities around the world. Their support to the Secretariat and Blue Cross network are instrumental in ensuring that we draw attention to the issues faced by dependent people and their families and implement life-changing projects in prevention, treatment, counselling and aftercare.

Through strategic partnerships and donations we achieve our mission and ensure all interventions of the Blue Cross are carried out considering our core values. With support from our partners and donors, we work together with individuals and communities to overcome dependence in the true spirit of “Doing it Together!”.


We are looking forward creating a cooperation with you!Anja TuchtenhagenEmail

Managing a company successfully means much more than calculating profit margins, calculating sales and generating profits. Companies bear responsibility for their employees and employees’ families: companies influence their social security and financial situations and often even the socio-economic structure of their city or district.

In a globalized world, more and more companies want to demonstrate care for broader social responsibility. National and international commitment is becoming the focus not only of large companies, but also of small and medium-sized enterprises.

If you, as a company, are toying with the idea of getting involved internationally, we can discuss various possibilities with you individually. As a cooperation partner, we jointly develop a partnership vision that is adapted to your needs and ideas.

Examples of a partnership:

Your company can sponsor one of our programmes. The period and scope of the participation will be determined individually.

Christmas fundraising:
You can donate a certain amount or percentage of your profits annually at Christmas. Employees can participate individually by donating part of their Christmas bonus.

Marketing partnership:
If you include our work in your marketing activities, we advertise you as a sponsor.


We are looking forward to bundle our expertise!Anja TuchtenhagenEmail

Our fundamental values are based on the Christian faith, charity, and solidarity with those in need. We have a long tradition as a Christian organization: Pastor and founder of the Blue Cross movement Louis-Lucien Rochat and his fellow campaigners were already helping people with alcohol problems to participate again in social life and to overcome their addiction at the end of the 19th century. The unconditional solidarity with those who have been pushed to the margins of society and the holistic-spiritual acceptance of all humans distinguishes our work and that of our members. This is why we are especially happy to receive support from churches and Christian organizations.

Options are:

Support one of our programs with a one-time or recurring donation.

Collections from your community can benefit our programmes.

We are happy to discuss cooperation possibilities and provide you with information materials. We also look forward to getting to know you and your church personally.


We are looking forward to your support in the global SouthAnja TuchtenhagenEmail

Partnership with local authorities is playing an increasingly important role in international development cooperation. Their support and expertise are particularly appreciated in areas that are traditionally the responsibility of local authorities. Towns and municipalities can play a role in partnership while also benefitting from cultural exchange.

Cooperation with communities and towns is an essential part of our programmes at IBC. We are currently seeking municipal partners to support our work with marginalised young people worldwide. Partners can support an individual country programme or participate in a long-term partnership.

We will be happy to work with you to develop an individual strategy for the joint exchange and support of our work in the municipalities and communities of the global South.
