The Friends of the ARK
Freundeskreis Die ARCHE Hamburg e.V. – The Friends of the ARK is a registered non-profit organization with charitable tax-exempt status. The Friends were founded in 2006 with the purpose to support the ARK, both by raising money for the organization and by being a sparring partner for the social workers. The board of Friends of the ARK works on an honorary basis – every cent raised goes without deduction, always project-bound, to the ARK Hamburg. There are no administrative costs. The Friends of the ARK has 178 members.
Today 60-90 children age 4 to 13 visit the children’s house and 50-70 young adults come to the youth house.
The ARK Hamburg is a non-profit organization, almost one hundred per cent financed by donations – therefore dependant on outside help. That is why Friends of the Ark Hamburg is there to help.
