You would like to donate?
SBA GIRASSOL Kids/Pro largely depends on donations from Germany in order to operate and develop further. The monthly operating costs currently amount to € 35.000. To give you an idea of how this sum is made up, we have listed a few items as examples:
- Water + gas + telephone = € 140,00/month
- Cleaning/cleaning supplies = € 425,00/month
- Maintenance of our vehicle = € 180,00/month
- Salary of one social worker = € 1.350,00/month
- Salary of one vocational school teacher = € 1.250,00/month
- Salary of one child care worker = € 900,00/month
- Salary of one kitchen assistant = € 900,00/month
- Lunch = € 1,50/meal
- Children's birthday party = € 85,00/birthday child
Every donation, no matter how large or small, is welcome! The most ideal form of donation is one that is made regularly, by standing order, for instance. Such regular, ongoing donations allow us to plan more easily and therefore to support the GIRASSOL-project more effectively and sustainably. The link to the form can be found at the bottom of this page.
Some of our long-time supporters take a private event (a birthday party, an anniversary, other festivities or events) as an opportunity to donate a more generous sum to the social project GIRASSOL by asking their guests for a donation to the Förderverein Girassol e.V. instead of gifts. Perhaps such a consideration would also be an option for you too! Of course, we would be happy to support you with further information if you intend doing this. Please don’t hesitate to contact us in this regard!
If you are interested in our detailed annual report, please contact us.
We, the Förderverein Girassol e.V. based in Germany, is recognized as a non-profit and charitable organization by the tax authorities, according to § 5 Sec.1 No. 9 KStG (Körperschaftssteuergesetz = Corporate Income Tax Act) and we can therefore issue tax deductable donation receipts to our supporters. Furthermore, we guarantee that 100% of the donations received will reach SBA GIRASSOL Kids/Pro in Brazil.
Due to tax legislation, it is not possible for donors in Germany (or elsewhere) to donate money directly to GIRASSOL in Brazil and receive a donation receipt recognized by the tax authorities in Germany.
We would be very pleased to welcome you as a donor or permanent supporter of GIRASSOL!
How can you donate?
Amazon Smile + your purchase = doing good
The Förderverein Girassol e.V. has been recognized by Amazon as being eligible to take part in the charitable program "Amazon Smile". At the request of the customer, AMAZON donates 0.5% of the purchase value to an NGO as selected by that customer. If you order goods from AMAZON, you can, with a few clicks, register at no cost at “Amazon smile” and thus donate 0.5% of your purchase amount to GIRASSOL (the price of the goods you purchased remains the same!).
It is very simple:
- enter smile.amazon.de
- log in with your normal Amazon user and Amazon password
- enter organization to support "Girassol" (with 2 "s"!) - enter - select "Förderverein Girassol e.V.”
- always start future purchases at AMAZON via "smile.amazon.de" - everything else will then work as usual
The more people that order their purchases this way, the more likely we will be able to raise a significant, additional amount of money for GIRASSOL in Brazil!
