All income from donations is exclusively contributed to the volunteer program (flights, language courses, seminars for the volunteers). Administrative costs are covered by the membership fees. If you want to have more detailed information as to how and to what ends your money will be spend, please read our FAQ-donations page.

Apart from a singular donation you may also become a sustaining member or opt for regular donations of a freely selected amount. To that end you only have to download and send in the form to become a sustaining member.

Despite the fact that we receive financial support from the federal state in the framework of its promotion of “reverse” volunteer programs by the federal ministry of cooperation (BMZ) starting in January 2013, we are still in need of financial promotion from private supporters. With this money we pay for example the flights of the volunteers, the language courses, the visa and the seminars accompanying the program.

Our promise: Your support will arrive!

Your donation has the sole purpose of supporting the volunteer program of the Zugvögel. To serve that end we have two bank accounts: one for the promotion of the volunteer program, one for organizational (internal, administrative) tasks.

In general – and as long as it is not indicated differently – we transfer your whole donation to the bank account of the volunteer program. You may, however, consent to 10% of your donation being used for covering the expenses of administrative tasks. Usually we cover our organizational costs (printing, postage, telephone, bank account etc) with our membership fees. Our work is voluntary and without pay.
