Which type of membership is best for you?

Active membership: Active members will be informed about current projects, upcoming events, future developments and our successes regularly by mail or by website. Topics, planned projects and developments can be discussed in our online forum. Active members can contribute according to their availability, interests or skills in their chosen fields. This can include typing work, translations, social media, letter writing etc. New ideas are welcome.

Passive membership: Passive membership is for individuals who have no time for active participation, but are interested in current developments of the association. There is always the option of switching to active membership. Passive members will also be regularly informed by mail or by website about current projects, upcoming events, future developments and our successes. Topics, planned projects and developments can also be discussed in our online forum.

Sponsors: Sponsors support the club financially. This type of membership is ideal for companies which want to support a good cause. It is also a way of support for people who have no time for active engagement but who still want to contribute to human rights work. Sponsors have no vote in the general assembly. They don’t join meetings. Our website will inform sponsors about current projects and our successes. The minimum contribution for a sponsor is €50 each year.

Donation receipts

Donation receipts can be sent for all donations and membership fees over €200 or by request. This receipt can be used for your taxes. It will be written in French with additional English information for your tax office. The tax receipt should be valid for most countries of the European Union regarding the Persche case. The ECJ has ruled that tax laws which discriminate against donations to public-benefit organisations based in other EU Member States are against the EC Treaty, as long as the recipient organisations based in other Member States are to be considered “equivalent” to resident public benefit organisations.  Please be sure to send us your name, your address or e-mail address with the donation, so we can send you the certificate via e-mail or mail. Companies must also specify the company’s name.

Termination of membership

A termination of membership as an active member, passive member or sponsor is always possible at the end of the year’s membership. The request for termination must be sent in written form and must be sent eight weeks prior to the actual termination date.
