In 80 days around the world – that was my first thought when I noticed that we reached the target of 2000 Euros for the donation campaign 2016/2017 within 80 days. A BIG THANK YOU to each single of the donors!


Here are some statistics:

The donation campaign started on December 10th 2016 and finished February 28th 2017

68 donations added up to reach our goal. On the average this means that we received almost every day a donation.

The average donation was approximately 30 Euro.

Biggest donations: 200 Euro (2x)

Smallest donation : 1 Euro


The donations came from 24 different countries.


Most donations came from:

  • Germany (12)
  • France (10)
  • Switzerland (5)


Biggest amounts came from :

  • Germany (420 Euro)
  • Switzerland (360 Euro)
  • France (250 Euro)
  • China (210 Euro)


For me personally the most "exotic" country a donation came from was Kosovo. But also Australia and Mexico... I love to see that BeWelcome becomes a little bit less Europe-centered every year :)


How the money reached us:

  • 46% through bank transfer
  • 51% through PayPal
  • 3% through BitPay

BeWelcome has no other source of money than donations. Even though all the work done for BeWelcome is volunteer based and nobody gets paid we still need to pay some bills like server costs, domain registration, obligatory insurances etc.
