Donate for a better life with potable water

If you want to donate money for clean drinking water, we can offer you three choices:

Monthly Donation

Monthly Donation

You donate a monthly amount of your choice.

1. Donations on a regular basis: This is our preferred variant, as it makes it easier for WeWater to plan ahead with regular donations. This works via standing order or Paypal.

Single-time Donation

Single-time Donation

You donate an amount of your choice once to WeWater.

2. We are of course also very happy if you opt for a single-time donation. One-off donations can be made via Paypal, bank transfer, direct debit or via our partner betterplace.

Project-related Donation

Project-related Donation

You donate for a project of your choice to WeWater.

3. If you would like to donate for a specific project, this is best done via Paypal, bank transfer or on betterplace. In this case, please indicate the intended project.

Why you can trust us

  • Our charitable status is recognized by the tax office.

  • We work on a voluntary basis and do not receive a salary, any benefits in kind or other kinds of allowances.

  • Since we are a small organization with flat hierarchies, we can work very effectively. Nearly every Euro raised benefits our statute target, as we don’t have to finance a huge administrative apparatus.

  • Our work is transparent. We published our statute and you can follow exactly what happens with your donations on our blog.

  • We committed ourselves even before founding WeWater. In 2016, we built a well for a community in Uganda. We raised funds back then and successfully realized the project.

Use of funds

In general, non-profit organizations are watched closely when it comes to administrative, organizational or even labor costs. Currently we are working with very low administrative costs. The few costs we have include website hosting, SSL certificate fees, banking fees and legal and tax consultant costs. We do not have any labor costs at the moment. Nonetheless, over time and when growing as an organization, wages spending will obviously be necessary.

Donations are tax-deductible

WeWater gUG is recognized as a non-profit organization by the tax office (Finanzamt für Körperschaften I, Bredtschneiderstr. 5, 14057 Berlin) as of the 2nd of January 2019.

Donations to WeWater gemeinnützige UG are tax deductible according to § 10b Abs. 1 EStG. We confirm that the donations will only be used for the promotion of charitable purposes in the sense of the promotion of development cooperation according to §§ 52 Abs. 2 Satz 1 Nr.(n) 15 AO.

Donations up to €300 (new since 01.01.2021, previously €200) per year can be taxed without the need of a donation receipt (§ 50 Abs. 2 Nr. 2 Buchst. b EStDV). Simply submit your bank statement together with this document for donations made until 31.12.2020  or this document for donations made from 01.01.2021 onwards. Important: For each donation by bank transfer, please indicate the intended purpose (e.g. monthly donation, one-time donation, donation for a specific project). This way we can allocate your donation correctly.

For donations over €300 starting 01.01.2021 or over €200 until 31.12.2020 we will provide you with a donation receipt in order for you to claim tax deductions. Please send us an email to with your full name and address so we can send you your donation receipt.
