Sepp Blatter Foundation given a warm welcome by Fux campagna residential home

To achieve something big in a small place: that is the aim of the Fux campagna residential home in Visp in Upper Valais, where severely disabled people are encouraged to lead as rewarding and active a life as possible.

Today Switzerland, tomorrow the world

One thing needs to be underlined first and foremost: while the canton of Valais in Switzerland should remain the focus, the Sepp Blatter Foundation, which first saw the light of day in 2006, should start operating on a wider national and international basis in the future, whilst still remaining true to its original principles.

2010 Award

The foundation’s award for 2010 was officially presented at the Sepp Blatter Tournament in Ulrichen, Valais on Sunday, 28 August 2011.

2009 Award

The foundation’s 2009 award was officially presented during the Sepp Blatter Tournament held in Ulrichen in the canton of Valais on Sunday, 29 August 2010.

2008 Award

The 2008 award went to the Upper Valais Association Forum Migration, which advises on and coordinates various projects to assist with the integration of asylum seekers and migrants. Examples include sponsorship of new arrivals for cultural purposes, the organisation of beginners courses in German at various locations in the canton and assistance with establishing dialogue between religions.

Future stars of Valaisan football

FC St-Maurice had proposed the idea of organising a competition – aimed at identifying the most talented under-13 players – to all of the clubs in the canton of Valais. “This trophy is a fantastic idea. We’re delighted to support it, all the more so because it’s going to be an annual event. It is vital that we boost the development of young players,” said Sepp Blatter.

2007 award

The 2007 Foundation Award was officially presented during the Sepp Blatter Tournament held on 31 August 2008 in Ulrichen in the canton of Valais.

A bumper cheque

The Foundation received a cheque for CHF 70,000 from the Fondation de la «Nuit des Neiges» on 29 August 2008 as well as a CHF 20,000 private donation. The funds were raised in February at the charity’s twenty-fifth annual snow-themed gala evening in Crans-Montana. With 550 guests, this year’s event was the biggest yet, and raised a total of CHF 180,000, to be shared between a number of charities. What a success!
