We are grateful!
Without the monthly donations (currently these are 475 euros altogether every month), our work wouldn’t be possible on this scale.
At the events we collect further donations, however, the continuity of monthly donations help safe planning, which contribute towards a lasting and successful organization.
My special gratitude therefore goes to all those who donate regularly and have supported us for almost a year.
In the meantime we have transferred the following amounts to the child relief organizations mentioned below:
1m² Bildung/Schule im Wald 500 Euro
(School project in Berlin, children with
Förderverein Südindien e.V. 500 Euro
(School project in India)
Buddy Bear Help e.V. 2.000 Euro
(Syrian refugee children)
TAMAD e.V. 500 Euro
(Jewish and Palestinian children are
brought together in an art-project)
Fortaleza e.V. 300 Euro
(School project in Brazil)
Förderverein des Elisabethstifts e.V. 1.000 Euro
(different children projects in Berlin
It turned out that donation transfers to charitable organizations, which have their seat abroad, are difficult, since the German tax office has strict demands with proof duties.
There has to exist German translations of the respective statutes, which must be in accordance with the German law, i. e. the criteria of charity are not determined by the rules of the organization’s seat abroad but by the German law.
This complicates the entire process, as first of all, an examination must be fulfilled by the German tax office, for any foreign organization, before a donation can be carried out.
The translation of documents from smaller organizations can also be a hurdle.
For the future, we are therefore interested in supporting organizations which are active abroad but have their seat in Germany.
