Help needs donations for its projects and programmes. Help funds its emergency aid projects and development collaboration through donations and public subsidies.
Help is registered at Bonn District Court (VR4650) and recognised as being particularly eligible for subsidies by the Bonn-Inner City tax office (Tax no. 205/5783/1000) in accordance with the notice of exemption of 24.11.2014. Help promotes charitable and non-profit-making purposes.
The independent German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI) in Berlin has awarded Help its DZI donations seal of quality for many years. The donations seal of quality has to be renewed every year. This "Donations Technical Inspection Certificate" is given only to humanitarian-charitable organisations, which use their funds economically, in accordance with their articles of association and comply with the provisions under tax law.
Your donations are in goods hands at Help because your assistance arrives without any bureaucracy at the place where it is needed - without any major administrative expenditure.
