Become a permanent donor
Donate for a better life without thirst
The WeWater team works on a voluntary basis. In order to finance our development projects, we rely on donations. Help now with a donation!
Our non-profit status is recognized by the tax office.
We work on a voluntary basis and do not receive any salary, benefits in kind or any other compensation.
Since we are a small organization with flat hierarchies, we work very effectively. Virtually every euro goes to the goal of the statutes because we don't have to finance a huge administrative apparatus.
We work transparently, have published our statutes and in the blog as well as on our social media channels, you can follow exactly what is happening with your donations.
Use of funds
In general, administrative, organizational or even wage costs are viewed as critical in non-profit organizations. We are currently working with very low administrative costs. This includes costs for website hosting, account management fees, fundraising costs and costs for legal and tax advisors. At the moment we have no wage costs. Nevertheless, salary expenses will be necessary when our organisation reaches a certain size.
