The purchase of the ship and the initial costs were financed by private assets of the founders. Now Sea-Watch depends on donations.
Donations for Sea-Watch e.V. are tax-deductible as Sea-Watch carries a non-profit status. For donations more than 200,00 € please give your full address for the issuing of a donation receipt. For donations up to 200,00 € you only need the basic donation receipt in conjunction with your bank. Donations with the subject “Sea-Watch” will be used exclusively for the implementation of this project.
