Le fonctionnement de Crêt-Bérard est assuré par autofinancement, grâce à ses activités et au soutien fidèle de nombreux donateurs. Si vous désirez faire partie des donateurs, plusieurs options s’offrent à vous.

Support the house you love

In normal circumstances, we make a living from our work and your donations. During this pandemic, our activity has been very much hindered and we need to count on our friends.

We greatly appreciate your contributions to support the House. Every donation, small or large, occasional or regular, is precious.

To make a donation online, please go to this dedicated page. You can also make a bank transfer to CCP 18-2527-6.

In the name of the Foundation and the whole team, our sincere thanks.

    Every year, a financial appeal is launched under the name Operation TOP. This campaign comes as a letter attached to the summer edition of the “Nouvelles de Crêt-Bérard” (news bulletin in French). The donations collected are used to finance the activities that are less profitable and yet essential to Crêt-Bérard’s mission. This support enables us amongst other things to welcome people and groups with limited financial resources. On request, it is possible to receive a payment slip booklet for regular donations. A twice-annual collection of the Canton of Vaud’s reformed parishes is regularly allocated to supporting Crêt-Bérard, thus demonstrating and reinforcing the bonds present since the beginning.

    A “lacis” is a French word for a network of interwoven threads; likewise, the members of this team form a network of motivated volunteers.
