Transparency is important to us. Especially because we are financed to a large extent by grants and donations in addition to our own funds.
In Germany, there are no uniform publication requirements for civil society organizations. Transparency helps to make one’s own work comprehensible to the public and donors, thus strengthening trust and credibility.
In 2010, on the initiative of Transparency International Deutschland e.V., numerous actors from civil society and academia defined ten basic points that every civil society organisation should make accessible to the public.
We participate in the Transparent Civil Society Initiative and therefore commit to making the following ten pieces of information available to the public and keeping them up to date.
