Fundraising

Financing Burner Embassy operations for the next 2-3 years requires our entire community to chip in. Please support us by using the tool above, or by making a transfer to the following bank account. You will need to specify „Burner Embassy Berlin“ in the „purpose“ field.

Berlin Burner e.V.

DE43 1005 0000 0190 6203 82

BELADEBEXXX

Berliner Sparkasse

Minimum donation: 5€ per month (more is welcome)

We are ideally looking for donation pledges for a three-year period (or, up the the end of our permitted „pioneer use“ of the  Haus der Statistik space).

How much money does the Burner Embassy need?

Our monthly costs for the space are €200 – €250 at minimum, and we need to take care of the initial one-time deposit of €650. If we manage to raise even more funds, we will apply the money toward future project needs. 

How are donations collected, and what if I change my mind?

Donations will either be collected via SEPA direct debit from the specified bank account (preferred), or you will need to regularly transfer the money to us three days before the end of each month at the latest.

Donation pledges can be modified or ended up to the 15th of each month (by recalling the SEPA mandate).

Are there any perks associated with becoming a regular donor?

We can display each donor’s name or abbreviated name in the Burner Embassy Berlin if desired. There are no further rights or obligations associated with the donation. If you want to make your voice heard, join the discussions.

If the Burner Embassy closes down, donors will decide what happens to the remaining funds (although there may be legal restrictions related to this process).

 

Goals

Create a space for planning and exchange: The burner community will come together here to plan projects, conduct official meetings, and hold informal discussions.

Provide a space for workshops: The Burner Embassy Berlin can be used for holding donation-based workshops (if aligned with the 10 principles of Burning Man).

Facilitate communication: The Burner Embassy Berlin will serve as a central hub for burners in Berlin, and as a well-known contact point for burners from elsewhere. Regular public events (Burning Pub, Pasta Potluck, Crafternoon, Filmcafe, …) will be held here. People who are new to the 10 principles and their implementation will be welcomed to join our community.

Permit long-term community engagement and greater visibility: Most burner projects are temporary. The Burner Embassy will allow our community to co-create something much longer-lasting. In addition, our space provides opportunities for displaying works of art to a wider audience.
