Income and Expenses

As a charitable organization, we are mainly financed through donations, grants from the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and other government agencies, plus money from fines and penalties which have to be paid to good causes. The costs for administrative work, PR, and recruiting donations (totaling 18.84% of all costs) are partly covered by a support group consisting mainly of doctors.

Earnings

The total volume of earnings was TEUR 13,294 in 2019 compared with TEUR 8,642 in 2018.

At TEUR 5,121, the volume of cash and material resources made available to us by our donors was significantly higher than in the previous year. Grants from other organizations are also higher than in the previous year. Due mainly to an extraordinarily high inheritance, the discounts have far exceeded the long-term values. Fines also reached a higher level than in the previous year. Like the additions from special campaigns, these revenues can only be influenced by us to a limited extent. The income from federal funds corresponds to the budgeted figures for 2019.

Expenses

Expenses (for personnel, amortizations, and other expenses) totaled TEUR 8,302 in 2019. According to the procedure recommended by the German Central Institute for Social Questions (DZI), we classified our expenses in the business year 2019 as follows:

Through public relations (PR) and fundraising we aim to make our organization known to the public and maintain the volume of donations needed to finance our projects. We spent 18.84% of total expenses for administration, PR and fundraising in 2019.

Responsible handling of the money entrusted to us is a matter of course for us. For example, we take our non-profit status into account in the remuneration of our employees and the two members of the Executive Board. The remuneration is also in line with industry standards. In 2019, the German Doctors e.V. employed employees in four remuneration groups, which are listed here with their average annual gross salary (based on full-time positions). Administration: 31,449 Euro, referent/staff positions: 44,222 Euro, team management: 61,246 Euro, Executive Board: 80,786 Euro. The actual individual annual gross salaries are not published here for data protection reasons. The amount of the remuneration depends on the responsibility of the respective position, experience, time spent in the position, length of service and age.

A total of 81.16% of our expenses went into projects and benefited the people in our project countries directly. Expenses in this area can be classified as follows:

Expenses for Projects 2019 German Doctors

Expenses for medical projects

These constitute the focal point of our activities. We supported nine projects in five countries in 2019. The extent and priorities of these medical projects vary greatly, which is expressed in the magnitude of financial means invested in these medical projects.

Expenses for supplementary projects

Aside from medical projects, we engage in 15 supplementary projects which are closely related thematically and spatially with the medical work performed by our voluntary doctors. These include, for example, the Pushpa Home and the St. Thomas Home, both tuberculosis hospitals in Calcutta, and our HIV program in Nairobi. The expenses for supplementary programs during the previous three years according to the recipient country are as follows:

Moreover, we perform wide-ranging help through partners in the areas of child raising, agrarian economy and environment, health, credit programs, disaster aid, social work, and community development in 49 partner projects in 14 countries (2019). The support ranges from a single contribution of € 500 to a four-year development project with a financial volume of € 700,000. The large partner projects are co-financed by the national government organisations, above all by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), which contributes 75% and our organization, 25% of the financing. The other partner projects are financed by industry or private support groups.

The organisation’s annual financial statements including bookkeeping are regularly examined by a certified accountant selected by the annual members’ meeting. You can, of course, completely download the 2019 financial statement (German) examined by the accounting firm Bansbach GmbH, as well as the unlimited audit certificate. You can also find the most important figures, dates, and facts about our work during the past business year on pages 42-47 in our progress report (German).

As a result of the Corona crisis, the audit of our financial statements for this year was unfortunately postponed somewhat, so that we had to publish the audited financial statements in the separate publication Annual Report 2019: Figures - Data - Facts.

German Doctors help worldwide

We believe in the right of every human being to get medical care no matter their origin. Therefore our volunteer German Doctors offer medical treatments in developing countries for the poorest of the poor. Whether people infected with HIV, undernourished children deficiency syndromes or people with chronic diseases, we help everyone who needs help.

Our doctors work during their annual leave or retirement for a period of six weeks and waive any compensation. More than 7000 missions with more than 3200 doctors were completed since 1983.
