The majority (81%) of our income comes from public funds. We obtain these funds through public tenders, funding programmes and research work. Donations correspond to approximately 8% of our income. We generated almost 5% through services provded; sponsoring currently accounts for 4.6% of our funds.
Projects financed by individual donations or based on voluntary work
Our projects emerge from a solution-oriented as well well idealistic approach, and are often driven by volunteer activities.
Individual donations make the continuity and independence of these activities for the public possible. Help us by donating today!
Most of our spendings are linked to the implementation of projects and the organisation of events. We try to keep fixed costs (non project-related expenditure) low. Rent, ancillary costs for the Berlin office and server expenses represent the majority of such costs.** for example infrastructure, book keeping, insurances
We currently employ the equivalent of around 18.5 full-time staff.
