How can you continue to collect donations for your project which is not registered as tax exempted in Germany? We have put together a collection of possible alternatives :

  1. Is your project part of an organisation, which is locally registered in your country as an official NGO? Please contact our Partner Maecenata, who might be able to support you to become tax exempted in Germany. If so, you can continue to use betterplace.org for your fundraising.
  2. Would you like to continue your project pretty much in the same way you were used to at betterplace.org? Then we recommend our partner Leetchi.com. You can continue your fundraising in a similar way. Leetchi charges a maximum of 4% on the donations you collected. Register for free at Leetchi.com.
  3. You need a donation button for your website? You can use Paypal to receive donations on your site. Find further information on how to implement their technology and their fees on Paypal.com
