FAQ about donations

Which kind of donation suits me best?

In order to be able to preserve Europe's nature for future generations, we are dependent on donations. We need funds to save Europe’s nature also for future generations. You can decide how to support us:


A single donation helps us use financial resources where they are urgently needed.

With a permanent donation you can become a sustaining member of EuroNatur. This gives us planning security for our medium term and long term projects.

If you are an entrepreneur, a senior manager or a freelancer you will find our suggestions for your active citizenship here.

Donations instead of gifts: If you want to ask your guests to make a donation instead of a gift on special occasions, you will find appropriate information on this site.

In the run-up to Christmas, Patagonia runs a special donation campaign: “The Gift of Giving – Donate to environmental protectors on behalf of a loved one". Patagonia will double all donations made between November 29 and December 31 on behalf of a beloved person on Patagonia Action Works.

Do you prefer to support us rather actively than financially? Here is our list comprising several possibilities.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. Our contact persons are looking forward to hearing from you.

Whether you are an active volunteer or a philanthropist: no matter which form of support you choose – you can help us remain a strong, networked and independent voice for Europe’s nature. Please make use of your possibilities as future needs nature.

Which payment methods can I use?

The easiest way for us to receive your donation is a SEPA authorisation (direct debit). For this purpose you can use our online donation form.

Since autumn 2017, Facebook has been offering also a donation function which you can use via www.facebook.com/euronatur, too. To do this, you must store your payment data in your Facebook profile. This service is currently free of charge for non-profit organisations in Europe.

On Instagram it is possible to start a fundraiser for EuroNatur at instagram.com/euronaturorg. To do so, create a new contribution for your story and add the donation sticker. Then select EuroNatur as the recipient of the donations. The conditions are the same as on Facebook.
