Your support makes equitable education possible. Get involved as a private individual or with your company. Donate or become a member of Visions for Children. We offer you numerous opportunities to get involved and look forward to your support!
SUPPORT VISIONS FOR CHILDREN WITH YOUR COMPANY
Corporate social responsibility measures are appreciated by consumers and employees alike and can help you build a better brand image. Let your company become an active facilitator of this new consciousness. Companies such as Liebeskind, Wonderwaffel, Klarna, Beiersdorf, Google Pixel and Hamburger Sparkasse are already working with us. You would like our one-pager or directly an individual consultation – then contact us by e-mail.
HOW YOUR COMPANY CAN GET INVOLVED
THE CLASSIC: A DIRECT DONATION
Corporate donation sits among the most used support options. We would be happy to advise you in an individual conversation about the forms of donations and the projects to be supported in order to find the right fit for your company. Of course, we issue a donation receipt through the donation received, so that your company also benefits tax-wise.
DOUBLE THE DONATIONS – THE MATCHING FUND
The corporate donation can be extended by the so-called matching fund. Actively involve your customers and/or employees with a request to donate while you as a company double the amount donated at the end of the campaign. This format is guaranteed to generate broad media reach for your brand through our campaign activities.
Ein simples Tool für das Verdoppeln von Spenden deiner Mitarbeiter*innen stellen auch Spendenplattformen wie Benevity, YourCause, GlobalGiving oder deed dar. Gerne unterstützen wir euch bei Fragen hierzu oder der Einrichtung eines Accounts – schreibt uns einfach eine Mail.
JOINT EVENT – THE EVENT DONATION
Our events give you and your team the opportunity to take part in an inspiring live event for Visions for Children e.V. to engage and generate brand awareness. From charity football tournaments to gallery exhibitions, we offer a wide range of formats to position your brand as a partner of our organization.
DONATE THE REMAINING CENT – THE PAYROLL GIVING
Payroll Giving describes a voluntary renunciation of the employees for a portion of their salary that can be selected at will. This could be, for example, the amount behind the comma of the monthly salary, which is why this donation method is also called a “spare cent donation”. This amount is automatically withheld by the accounting department before the salary is paid and passed on directly to Visions for Children e.V. as a donation.
YOUR CHARITY PRODUCT – CAUSE-RELATED MARKETING
A global trend is emerging: appeals to the social conscience of consumers trigger purchasing impulses. Dedicated marketing combines the sale of a product or service of your company with the generation of donations for our projects. Together we develop concepts for a charity product perfectly suited for your brand. With each unit sold, a certain amount of the proceeds will then go to our organization.
TALK ABOUT US – THE MEDIA CONTRIBUTION
Use your corporate communications to amplify the message of Visions for Children e.V. Present our organization or our projects in your newsletter, on social media or on the company’s own blog. We are happy to provide you with the necessary material. Contact us and we will work together to develop a strategy for an effective media contribution.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED AS AN EMPLOYEE
DONATE COMPETENCE – CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING
Do you have knowledge and skills that Visions for Children e.V. could benefit from? Then support us directly and volunteer your time and expertise. Be it in finance, public relations or event management, contact us and together we will find you the perfect task.
DONATION INSTEAD OF FLOWERS – THE GIFT DONATION
Instead of a lush bouquet of flowers or the usual birthday voucher why not have the company donate an equivalent amount to one of the Visions for Children e.V. projects? The birthday celebrant receives a personalised donation certificate from us. The annual Christmas party is also a great opportunity to make a donation on behalf of the employees or to collect contriutions with our DIY donation box. Check out our donation shop to learn more about gift options.

AMPLIFY YOUR DONATION - DONATION PLATFORMS
Want to maximize the impact of your donation? You can donate to organizations or projects on platforms such as Benevity, YourCause, GlobalGiving or deed – your company doubles or multiplies the amount! To do this, you need a company account on the respective platform. If you’re not sure whether you already have one, it’s best to contact your CSR or HR department. We are also happy to help you with questions or setting up a profile – just send us an email.
