What impact will my contribution have?
Your contribution and involvement enable us to jointly help people in emergencies to overcome bureaucratic difficulties and to build sustainable structures for online volunteering and social coaching. A monthly contribution of 5 € finances approximately the social coaching for one person per year. We expect monthly costs of about 50 € per volunteer for recruitment, training, and coordination and about 10 annual coaching sessions per volunteer.
Why does the LIFE Initiative need funding?
All volunteers of the LIFE Initiative work free of charge, but for the technical and organizational structures, we depend on donations. We have also already applied for government grants. Since the grant programs usually require 10 % of our own funds, up to ten times the amount of your donation can be raised as a budget for the LIFE Initiative.
What are the obligations of my membership?
Supporting membership is not associated with any obligations or risks and can be canceled on a monthly basis. As a supporting member, you will receive regular information about the work of the LIFE Initiative and can support us as an advisor with your know-how. Full members are encouraged to actively promote the goals of the association, can get involved in different areas, and participate in general meetings. Feel free to write us about your experience. A regular time commitment is not required.
How much tax do I save with the donation receipt?
Your donations and contributions to the LIFE Initiative are fully deductible from your income tax. The tax savings can be up to 50 % of the donation. The exact amount depends on your income. You can check it with a donation calculator.
