What we do
WE AID offers a professional, non-profit organisational structure on a temporary basis: We want to enable private initiatives or individuals to implement their personal non-profit commitment within a few days. WE AID thus contributes to the independent realisation of civil society activities and to the strengthening of social engagement. 100% of the donations collected for the initiatives benefit their purpose. WE AID itself is also dependent on donations and supporters. We are happy to receive direct support in order to be able to maintain our services in the long term.

Our target groups
> Committed private individuals who want to realise their initiatives through WE AID.
> Donors who want to support current crisis situations financially
> Companies and organisations that want to realise their initiatives through WE AID

Vission and mission
WE AID exclusively and directly pursues charitable purposes within the meaning of the section "Tax-privileged purposes" of the German Fiscal Code (AO):
> To enable short- and medium-term civil society engagement in acute crisis situations.
> To promote the exchange of experience and knowledge
> To build and promote networks in order to make civil society engagement even more effective
> Enable financial support by donors to non-profit initiatives and organisations
> Implement and support humanitarian activities, e.g. by coordinating aid and providing infrastructure.
