Our operations are mainly financed from our own resources. From the King Baudouin Foundation we receive funds for refugee work. But an organization must demonstrate its own resources and this more and more. We try to look for government resources as focused as possible, for projects that fit into the vision and mission of StapSteen. So far we do not have resources to pay wages.
We would like to grow to a monthly operating budget of 2,500 euros. A monthly fixed amount of 10-20-50-100-250 euros or another amount would be very helpfull!
Your financial support helps us through Stapsteen to be a warm focal point in the neighborhood, to be able to send our volunteers on path to vulnerable families and refugee families, and to invite the children who now play on the street to a nice and safe children’s play area.
There are also sponsorship opportunities through investment in a building: stepping stone is looking for a building to include a child care and housing project. We are looking for individuals, groups and churches wo would like to help us with a (larger) gift or a commitment from an amount. We can give you the info if you have a duo-legate considering.
We are also looking for people who want to invest in the longer term in a building for the vzw as an investment, for example through ground lease. Are you interested, do you possibly know someone, we are happy to provide any further info.
