We accept and encourage all forms of support, whether it's a single voice, a small donation or a contribution of time and energy. We publish the names of our supporters on the Flussbad website to show just how many people are interested in bringing the project to fruition.
Online purchases made via the charity platform Boost also help; depending on the online shop you chose, a certain percentage of the purchase amount makes it way to our non-profit association. Of course, we provide official receipts for all donations made to our bank account. In the case of donations made via our partner Betterplace (see the form below), the company "gut gAG" takes over the procedure.
Our first approved funding application, which came from the foundation known as the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin in the summer of 2014, provided the financing that allowed us to launch a primary professional investigation into the potential development of the project: this initial technical feasibility study examined hydrological issues associated with the Flussbad and produced positive results.
In November 2014, Flussbad Berlin became one of 21 premium projects to receive support as part of an urban development programme sponsored by Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conversation, Buliding and Nuclear Safety (BMUM) and the Berlin Senate. The programme runs until the end of 2018 and allows us to create a viable realisation plan for the Flussbad as well as to communicate our efforts to the public as effectively as possible.
