The sup­port by bridgebuilder is pro­vid­ed free of charge.

Before we coop­er­ate with NGOs, asso­ci­a­tions and oth­er organ­i­sa­tions that are recog­nised as char­i­ta­ble in Ger­many, we con­clude a writ­ten agree­ment that reg­u­lates the con­di­tions of the cooperation.

If you want to be sup­port­ed as a nat­ur­al per­son in the imple­men­ta­tion of char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es, we will ensure through a con­tract with you that you are active as an “aux­il­iary per­son” (see also § 57 AO) for bridgebuilder e.V. and that our asso­ci­a­tion can pre­cise­ly deter­mine your activities.

The agree­ments reg­u­late the following:

  • Con­tent and scope of the coop­er­a­tion and activities
  • Char­i­ta­ble pur­pose to be pursued
  • If applic­a­ble, nam­ing of partners/organisations with whom coop­er­a­tion will take place with­in the frame­work of the activity.
  • If finan­cial sup­port is grant­ed: Amount of funding.
  • Peri­od of support
  • In the case of nat­ur­al persons:
    Oblig­a­tion of the per­son to doc­u­ment the num­ber of work­ing hours in a time sheet and to sub­mit it to bridgebuilder e.V. for examination.

Fur­ther­more, it is necessary

  • that you inform us open­ly and trans­par­ent­ly about the progress or pos­si­ble prob­lems in your project;
  • that you dis­close fig­ures, cash flows, staff struc­ture and con­nec­tions to oth­er pri­vate or pub­lic actors in a trans­par­ent man­ner;
  • that you sup­port oth­er bridge­builders in their projects as far as possible;
  • that you get involved in the bridgebuilder net­work and con­tin­ue as a “bridgebuilder alum­nus”;
  • that you sup­port us in the fur­ther devel­op­ment of bridgebuilder e.V.

We would like all bridge­builders to see them­selves as a large, joint team that works together sym­bi­ot­i­cal­ly: every­one has their focus, roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties, but we sup­port each oth­er where we can.
