Our origins.

Once upon a time:
Our story began in 2006 with the Breidenbach family. During a trip around the world, it became clear to them that small social projects, without a large marketing budget, also deserved to get attention. However, they were not the only ones to come up with the idea of a free, online donation platform. This is what happened when they met rugby player Till Behnke…

What’s our take on transparency?

We think it’s essential! Promoting transparency is one of the basic concepts behind betterplace.org. That’s why we stipulate that all social projects collecting donations via our platform tell the community how those donations are being used.

The same goes for us too of course. You can read about how we use the funds at our disposal in the management reports contained in our annual statements.

Apart from that we’ve not hesitated to sign the declaration of commitment that’s part of Transparency International’s Transparent Civil Society Initiative.
