For us, transparency is a commitment

As a donor and supporter, you make an important contribution to the projects and programmes of our communion of churches. Your trust in our work is therefore very important to us. 

We have joined the TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL Deutschland e.V.,a global network leading the fight against corruption including more than 100 established national chapters. One of its principles is: Transparency creates trust!

We therefore follow the voluntary commitment of the initiative. Here you will find 10 points of information about the origin of our funds, how we use them and how our organisational structure is set up.
