Why support EWB?
Our projects depend on your support.
We carry out our projects voluntarily because we have fun doing it and are convinced of the matter. Support this commitment.
Our development work lives on the proximity to the people in need. We ourselves travel to developing countries to search for projects, talk to the needy, mold visions with them and define our goals. Direct development cooperation with those who need it.
You can find out for what the project donations were used for by clicking on the button “donations” on the project pages. With donations to EWB we pay our web hosting, measures for advertising purposes and individual purchases for the organization.
We are part of the “Initiative Transparente Zivilgesellschaft“. Our organization work is open to everyone.
You will receive a donation receipt from us. As a non-profit organization these will be issued for donations of 50€ and higher. This also applies to donations in kind and services. We need your full address, for a safe postal delivery of the donation receipt. Add it to your transfer form or send it to the fundraising contact of the project or the organization via email.
How can I support EWB?
Help us with a one-time donation. This could be a monetary donation or a donation in kind. Or become a supporting member of our organization and help us in the long-run. Or you can use Amazon Smile. Our organization is also based on non-material support. Help us with your advice or speak up for our cause by writing a testimonial for our organization.
Donate a one-time sum to one of our projects or EWB in general.
You can use the donation form at the top of the page too (not every project has its own donation form). Thanks to betterplace this is possible through:
- Direct debit
- Credit card
2.5% of the donations will be withheld by Betterplace to cover the transaction costs. If you have any questions, get in touch with the contact person of the project you’re interested in, the fundraising coordinator or our treasurer. You will find their contact details at the bottom of the page.
Donation receipts are usually sent out four times a year due to the time and effort they bring with them. As a voluntary organization, we don’t use any of our donations for the administration of our finances. That’s the reason why we can’t respond to every request for a donation receipt immediately. However, you will definitely receive your donation receipt in time for your tax return. If you wish to receive a donation receipt, please state your address in the reason for payment.
