Donating to Lassalle-Haus
It is only through support that we as a non-profit organization are able to ensure such a rich program and a wonderful place of silence and retreat. It fills us with joy to work together with you to advance and sustain these projects.
As a centre for interreligious dialogue, we offer programs that allow different paths to experience spirituality. The quality of the programs, individual participant focus, small group sizes, and the competency of our course instructors are very important to us and one of the hallmarks of our centre.
The Lassalle-Haus deliberately keeps its course costs low in order to make education accessible to all people. Our Solidarity Fund was established to assist people with limited financial resources who wish to participate in Lassalle-Haus programs. In the last 5 years, about 500 people have been able to participate due to reduced course fees via the fund.
"Here people have time for each other,
an open ear and they look out for each other."

Long-term Guests & Volunteers
For those who want to recalibrate themselves, we offer a stay on site for a period of up to 6 months. The stay is free and these long-term guests take part in simple work that is done in the house and the grounds. By doing so, one can take advantage of spiritual guidance and attend courses at a discounted rate. Long-term guests are important to us, because each guest inserts his own life story into the mosaic of the house community and supports & invigorates it.
zuwebe is an established social institution in the canton of Zug that supports the development and employment of local citizens with mental or psychological disabilities. Since early 2018, Lassalle-Haus has employed a small group of Zuwebe members to work as gardeners at the property. These members of the extended Lassalle-Haus team are responsible for some of the food grown for participant meals as well as for the flowers decorating our rooms and facilities.
We source our food primarily from regional organic producers, who meet our specific cultivation requirements. When we must import food products, we seek products that have fair trade certifications. Our contribution to environmentally friendly awareness is, however, associated with additional costs and higher purchase costs.
We are working to optimise the occupancy rate of the house and thus continue to gain financial stability. Nevertheless, as a charitable non-profit organization, we continue to depend on donations. Donations to educational centre are exempt from gift and inheritance taxes.
Donations to the Lassalle-Haus (either general donations or for a specific purpose) can be made with the enclosed payment slip or the following account:
