Frequently asked questions

There are always questions directed to charity organisations: How can I help? Will my money actually get to those in need? Can I receive support from the BeA-Foundation? Are there tax advantages? These questions and more are answered here.

I would like to be supported by the BeA Foundation - What do I do?

Contact us by phone or e-mail. We will then send you a project application with which you can provide us with all the relevant information. Your application will then be entered in the selection process for the following calendar year. The new projects are generally discussed and chosen in the autumn of the preceding year.

I am ill and need help urgently.

In accordance with its statutes, the BeA Foundation does not provide assistance in individual cases. The organisation effort necessary to assess the level of need is beyond the means of the Foundation. We hope that during the course of our charitable actions to be able to interact with other organisations and foundations to whom we can at the very least forward such requests.

Can I transfer my donation directly to the project partners?

In principle, you could transfer your donation directly to the project partners. Your donation will also be passed on in its entirety to the project partners as our administration costs are covered by the foundation capital’s yields and donations made solely for this purpose. As we chiefly support small, straight-forward projects, we can also tell you specifically how and where your donation has made a difference. By donating via the BeA Foundation, you are also supporting the work of our foundation.

I want to make a donation, but I would like to contribute to all three projects.

If you do not state the name of a project as the reason for payment on your transfer, your donation will be automatically distributed across all three projects equally.

How much of my donation actually reaches the project?

We pass on 100% of your donation to the project partner who is working with people in need on site. Our administration costs are currently €0 as they are covered by the foundation capital’s yield and donations made solely for this purpose.

Do you have any other questions?

Feel free to send us an e-mail. We will get back to you as soon as possible and add the query to this list if applicable.
