Do you want to implement your own volunteer project?

In order for your project to be successful and work efficiently, you need business knowledge and skills. Especially when it comes to financing a volunteer project, many people don’t know what they are doing.

And this is where we want to support you. As part of our EU project Entrepreneur+, we organised workshops on this topic. You can now find our concentrated knowledge in our handbook “How to finance my own volunteer project?” The handbook is also suitable for people, who have little experience in the financial field.

In the manual, we not only provide you with theoretical knowledge, but it also contains many practical exercises and templates. We hope that this will help you to finance your own volunteer projects.

In the 3 chapters, we will introduce you to the following steps that are important when financing a project:


  •       What do I need for my project? You will learn how to plan a project, how to set clear goals and how to determine what resources you will need.
  •       How do I get what I need? We introduce you to different financing methods. You can find out which method is the best for your needs.
  •         How do I handle the money? You will learn how to keep track of your costs, how to record transactions and how to inform the relevant authorities.

You can then share your knowledge and run a workshop yourself: In the attachment to the handbook you will find a schedule for a 3-hour workshop and practical exercises on the financing topic.
