Foundations & volunteering

Commitment for a good cause is a long-held tradition at our company. AXA, with its two foundations, makes a sustainable contribution for improved safety on our roads and for greater solidarity within our society. Our employees support projects across the globe that are social, environmental and educational, through both donations and voluntary work assignments.

  

AXA Foundation for Prevention

As Switzerland's largest motor vehicle insurer, we want to help make Swiss roads safer. The AXA Foundation for Prevention is committed to improving Swiss road safety. Our customers, the public, and all children, benefit from our many prevention measures.
