Behind every one of the 24 doors of the advent calendar there is a specific project. Every year we thoroughly select these 24 projects – only those that convincingly describe what and how they want to achieve the desired impact will make it in. Also, the organisations need to fulfil our transparency requirements. That way you can be certain that your donation is used well. Each time you open another door, you clearly see to whom and where your money goes and you have the joy of having done another good deed. In our online calendar, we also open one door every day, giving donors detailed information on and pictures of the supported projects.
The goal of this advent calendar is to make donations possible that make sense and to make good deeds a reality. Every euro funds something concrete – such as planting three trees. A donation of 24 euros helps to implement exactly 24 projects. For a higher donation each action will be implemented multiple times!

Of every euro that is donated…
… 75 cents go directly to the projects and fund the implementation of the specific good deed. We verify how these funds are used and what impact they have based on receipts and reports we get from the organisations six months after the donation season.
… 25 cents go into covering the cost of preparation, production and promotion of the calendar. This includes all costs for preparing and implementing project selection, printing the calendar as well as outreach.
We also demand transparency from our partner organisations. They have to make information such as their by-laws, end-of-year reports and how they use their funds publicly available. In addition, most organisations have a fund raising certificate or work in accordance to the self-commitment of the Initiative for a Transparent Civil Society.
