If you want to donate money for clean drinking water, we can offer you three choices:
Why you can trust us
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and address so we can send you your donation receipt.
