Special Occasion Giving

Get creative for Europe’s nature

Nature needs our support - and we need you! Help us to provide long term protection for Europe's natural treasures by starting a personal fundraising campaign for EuroNatur! You could plan a long distance bike ride and ask friends and relatives to sponsor you for every kilometre cycled, hold a New Year’s Eve party to raise money and recruit sponsors in support of the lynx or, rather than receiving birthday presents, you could ask people to make a donation to EuroNatur instead. Just let your imagination run wild!

Any donations you can raise this way will go directly to EuroNatur projects and help to protect endangered species and their habitats.

Here are a few of the ways in which you can support EuroNatur with special occasion donations - both offline and online.

The classic: a donation box

Have you invited guests to celebrate a festive occasion? Do you want to avoid receiving an assortment of gifts that are likely to just stack up at home? Then ask your friends and acquaintances to support Europe’s nature instead! You can set up a donation box at your celebration and send the donations on to EuroNatur afterwards.

You will be supporting us in two ways. Firstly, of course, through the monetary donation you will be making. But you will also be helping to raise awareness of EuroNatur’s conservation themes and projects - and, in doing so, attracting new supporters.

We will be happy to support you with materials or with design suggestions.

Please get in touch with us by contacting Sabine Günther.

If you want to receive a gift for a birthday or anniversary with donations for Europe's nature, your well-wishers will find with us the possibility to instantly create personalized gift certificates. The process is very fast and intuitive. This way, everyone gets something out of it: Your friends, family members and acquaintances have no hassle and you don't accumulate any dust catchers. Instead, you send effective signals against environmental destruction, which benefits Europe's nature. If you want to make it sporty: Get as many different certificates as possible. This will require some coordination on the part of those around you. You can find help with gift donations here.

 

Start your own online fundraising event with us!

Can you imagne to get active online? If so, you can create a personal fundraising event on our website. You can promote your event (birthday, anniversary, sporting challenge) on a dedicated page and collect donations via an online form. Your supporters are also welcome to leave a greeting or message on the page.

Markus Dressnandt will be happy to set up your page on euronatur.org for you.

Online fundraising with betterplace.org

We have created a fundraising project for our campaign to save Romania’s primary forests - “Save Paradise Forests” -  on the donation platform betterplace.org. You can start your own EuroNatur fundraising event for this project. Simply register with your name and email address, choose a title and description for your fundraising event and you're ready to start collecting donations!

To be successful, it’s important to spread the word about your fundraising campaign and ask for donations yourself. You can ask your friends, colleagues, relatives and acquaintances to support your campaign. It’s easy to use email, Facebook, Twitter and Xing to do this.

In the first instance, the donations you collect go to betterplace.org which keeps 2.5% of each donation in order to pay the payment providers’ transaction costs. It is only then that the money is passed on to EuroNatur. Your supporters will therefore receive donation receipts from betterplace.org.

Fundraising on Facebook

Are you active on Facebook? Then why not start a fundraising campaign for EuroNatur! Simply click “Fundraisers” on the EuroNatur Facebook page. You can create a campaign with just a few clicks and then invite your friends to donate. 

In order to be able to donate to EuroNatur via Facebook, you must set up a payment method in your Facebook profile. If your Facebook friends would rather use a different payment method, they can do so, of course, by donating via the donation form on our website or by bank transfer. 

We’re happy to help answer any specific questions you may have. Please contact Markus Dressnandt.
