Donations

How you can support us

We at SAGE Net promote intercultural learning experiences, exchange and cooperation between South Africa and Germany through our projects. In the implementation of these goals we have been supported for several years by various governmental institutions, organisations and individuals. Unfortunately, these donations are not always sufficient to fulfil our charitable mission.

Therefore we are always very happy about your support in the form of a donation! You can donate in different ways: by direct transfer to our donation account or via PayPal using the donation form below on Germany’s largest donation platform betterplace.org.

Alternatively you can support our volunteers directly with a donation. All you need to do is state the name of the person you would like to support in your voluntary service in the reason for payment. You can find out more about the use of this donation for the donor circle of our volunteers here.

Questions about donations?

A donation via PayPal arrives very quickly and is an easy way for you to send us a donation. Please note that a fee will be retained for payments via the PayPal payment system and that the amount you donate will not be credited to us 100%. For a standard payment we currently deduct 0.35 EUR + 1.9% (to the PayPal fee overview).

We ask for your understanding that we can only issue you with a donation receipt for the amount credited to our account.

In the following you will find our integrated donation form, which you can use to donate comfortably and directly without bank transfer or PayPal account. Your donation will benefit a specific project. Currently the form is used to support this year’s South Africa volunteers. More information can be found on our project page at betterplace.org. Thank you very much for your support!

If you are a member of our association or have donated money to the association, you can claim this on your tax return. For donations of up to 200 EUR, it is sufficient to submit a bank statement or a transfer confirmation together with a copy of this document with your tax return. For donations over 200€ you will need a donation receipt from us, which we will be happy to send you.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact info@sage-net.org or call us.
