We have taken the next step in making our project come to life. On the 01.09.2017 we invited friends and family to pitch our idea and fought our way through the german bureaucracy and are now register as a Non-Governmental Organisation.
Our journey begins with 31 members to our organisation
All members present had a vote and appointed the board of our organisation. Tom and Johannes were voted to be first and second chairperson. Domenic will be taking care of all finances as our treasurer. Our friend Jonathan completes the board as the secretary. Our accounts will be monitored by our cash auditor Tyll who will make sure that all incoming and outgoing payments are accounted for.
Next step: Registrating as a charitable organisation
So far we are only registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation. But soon we will apply to be a charitable NGO to enable us to produce receipts that are tax-deductible in Germany. As we are dependent on donations to cover the expenses this is the next step towards making our idea reality.
