Support asso­cia­ti­on



Below you will find infor­ma­ti­on on the finan­cing of Lifegate and the suppor­ting association.

Construc­tion investments

Almost all funds for construc­tio­n­al invest­ments in the Lifegate buil­ding are essen­ti­al­ly finan­ced by large orga­ni­sa­ti­ons such as the BMZ (Federal Minis­try for Econo­mic Coope­ra­ti­on), the Bava­ri­an campai­gn „Stern­stun­den” , the Federal State of North Rhine-West­pha­lia, large foun­da­ti­ons and other partners.

Our own contribution

The running costs of the work are finan­ced by indi­vi­du­al dona­ti­ons, collec­tions from paris­hes, members­hip fees and grants from aid organisations.

Howe­ver, it is a decla­red goal of Lifegate to gene­ra­te the costs of the ongo­ing work itself through its own services. In the last few years, it has been possi­ble to gene­ra­te about one third of the annu­al costs through own local inco­me such as the sale of work­shop arti­cles and olive oil and school fees as well as through the guest­house „Lifegate Garden”.

Dona­ti­ons, collec­tions, members­hip fees

The annu­al budget of Lifegate Beit Jala is curr­ent­ly about 1.2 milli­on €. Our asso­cia­ti­on has been able to collect dona­ti­ons, collec­tions and members­hip fees of about 500,000 € per year on average in the years 2017–2019. In addi­ti­on, there are the grants that the suppor­ting asso­cia­ti­on applies for in Germany.

Our asso­cia­ti­on contri­bu­tes about half of the running costs of the (support) work in the West Bank. The remai­ning funds that are requi­red are gene­ra­ted by our own efforts and provi­ded by other donors (orga­ni­sa­ti­ons) from around the world (as of 2020).
