The BeA Foundation’s work can be supported through donations and endowments. We guarantee: 100% of your donations go to our project partners, who work directly with the local people in need. The BeA Foundation’s administrative costs are covered by the income of the Foundation’s assets and specific grants. The work of the Board and of the Advisory Board is entirely voluntary.
Donate online or also the traditional way via wire transfer. Your donation arrives in any case and 100% of it goes to the respective project partners who work on-site with the people in need. Find out about how you can support us and what we do with our donations on this page.
If you are not taken with all of the BeA Foundation’s projects, you also have the opportunity to select just one to support. You can of course also distribute your donation across your favourite projects. Simply specify your favourite project(s) when you donate. If you do not specify anything, we shall distribute the donation across the three projects that we are supporting that year. You can see examples of this below in the information on bank transfer section.
As our Foundation is officially recognised as a non-profit organisation by the German tax office, you will receive a donation certificate from us which you can declare on your tax form. Please be sure to provide your full address with the bank transfer.
The foundation capital is invested in various, solid funds that pay out their profits at least once per year. We evenly distribute the entire profits at the end of the year across our three projects. The profits therefore are added to the collected donations, but have already been calculated in to the annual donation target. The foundation capital may not be liquidated by law by anyone – it always remains an integral part of the foundation.
We generally receive donations to support our three projects. Another way to support us is in the form of a grant. A grant of this kind raises our foundation’s capital and remains tied to the foundation. it therefore cannot be ‘passed on’, but will be invested in the funds, which in turn result in profits for our projects. A grant is useful in particular for larger amounts.
