Funding of volunteer service

Weltwärts is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The ministry assumes up to 75 per cent of the costs for volunteer service.  At least 25 per cent of the costs must be covered by the German sending organisation.  The volunteers can support their sending organisation in the funding of the volunteer service by collecting donations. However, this is not a requirement for the volunteer service.
