Management and supervision

The Swiss Zakat Foundation has an independent structure with its own board of trustees. Our organization follows the 21 standards of good conduct, called ZEWO standards, for the management of its operations.

Also, the day-to-day management of the Swiss Foundation for Zakat and its supervision are separated. The supervisory task is the responsibility of the Federal Supervisory Authority for Foundations.
