We use most donations for needs that we cannot finance through public funding because funding guidelines exclude some essential costs. These are often expenses in the area of appreciation of volunteers (financial compensation) and payments for catering of any events with children, families, and volunteers. Furthermore, the costs of infrastructure, administration and management are not covered (accounting, office rent, fixed fees for the Spiele-Star, public relations and fundraising)
Additionally, the funding is often not sufficient to cover all the needs of our target groups. In the past, we were able to finance summer camps, sports clubs and educational support in times of homeschooling through donations. More examples are shown in the donation figure above.
