Financial support

How can you apply for financial support?

You can only apply for financial support after you have registered your project. In your STATIA DOET account you will find a button called 'apply for financial support'. You can open an account by clicking the button "Login" on the top right of the website.

  • Note! The button 'apply for financial support' is only active if you indicated that you need more than 5 volunteers and if you have entered your banking details under the organization information.
  • Note! Applications can be submitted until January 23rd, 2017. Funding is provided on a first come first serve basis, so please send in your paperwork early!

Conditions regarding your application for financial support:

  1. Your organization is an official foundation, school or association and you have a dedicated bank account;
  2. Your job is registered on www.statiadoet.com
  3. Your job fits in with the spirit of STATIA DOET: for your organization to seek new volunteers who can help you to get a specific job done on Friday March 10th and/or Saturday March 11th, 2017.
  4. You need at least 5 new volunteers per project.
  5. Only one financial support will be granted per address/location.

Note: We would love to help as many organizations as possible, but we have a limited budget. If you do not meet the above criteria, you will not be eligible for financial support. It goes without saying that your organization can still participate in STATIA DOET. Register your projects early and give volunteers more opportunity to notice you.

  • Costs you made for a day trip, such as transportation and entry fees
  • Salary of artists, hairdressers, manicures etc. if your job is a make-over party
  • If your activity is a high tea, lunch or dinner, you can use the entire grant for food and drinks 

What we do not reimburse under any circumstances:

  • Purchase of pre-built material or prêt a porter goods
