Our Charities

Supporting and raising funds for charities is important to us. Throughout the year, we raise funds and donate goods to charities nominated by our members. Our main fundraisers are our Bake Off events where we currently support three charities local to Basel:

Frauenhaus, Soup and Chill, and Surprise Strassenchor. (These links are in German).

In 2020 due to the pandemic, we were unable to organize our usual events, so our members donated 1000 CHF to each of our charities.

At our Spring Bake Off, we support the Frauenhaus, a domestic violence shelter in Basel. As a local women’s group, we want to support women in need and felt it appropriate to start on our own doorstep. 

At our early summer events; we raised 850.00 CHF for Soup & Chill, a charity that supports the homeless in Basel. We have a strong relationship with Soup & Chill and have previously donated cakes to their bake sales. We also hire their kitchen and dining space over the Summer months for cookery and baking events.

At our Winter Bake Off, we will support the Surprise Strassenchor, a charity choir that helps support those in extreme poverty as well as providing them with a creative outlet.
