Help on a special occasion
There are many occasions during the year which deserve to be celebrated. Often the persons celebrating a birthday or anniversary don’t know what they would like to receive. For this reason, we have introduced an occasion donation. You can request your guests to make a donation to the German Doctors instead of bringing a gift on a special occasion. This is the perfect solution for individuals who have everything or simply want to do a good deed.
A celebration donation is a super chance to use a personal occasion to do a good deed. You spend a wonderful time with family and friends and at the same time help people all over the world. While you, for example, enjoy a delicious meal with guests, you know that children in Chittagong (Bangladesh) have enough to eat. If you have just become parents and are delighted that your child was born healthy, your occasion donation can ensure that a woman can deliver safely in hospital under medical supervision for mother and child.
There are many opportunities to make an occasion donation:
- Wedding and wedding anniversaries, like a silver one
- Birth and christening of a child
- Communion or confirmation
- Company or employee jubilee
- Christmas or other religious holiday
- Community celebration
- Summer celebration of a sports club
Even if the personal occasion is a sad one and not appropriate for a celebration, a condolence donation is a good way to honor the deceased, especially if s/he was socially engaged when alive. A donation in the form of an occasional donation is an appropriate memento.
Regardless of whether the occasion is a happy or a say one, an occasion donation helps us in two ways. You collect money for people in slums who have no access to basic medical care and, at the same time, introduce our organization to your family and circle of friends. You set a good example and provide substantial help for our projects.
Do you have any questions?

The Donation Seal of the German Central Institute for Social Issues (Deutsches Zentralinstitut für soziale Fragen, DZI) confirms the responsible handling of entrusted means. The German Doctors e.V. has received this seal for over 20 years.
This is how an occasion donation works
1) Contact us
Please inform us of your occasion donation shortly before your celebration. Call us at +49 (0)228-387597-16 or send us an E-Mail so we can send you our individual action package with donation box and written information. We would be happy to advise you about your occasion donation.
2) Inform your guests about the action
Include our bank data on the invitation:
Bank für Sozialwirtschaft
IBAN: DE26 5502 0500 4000 8000 20
This will give them enough time to fulfill your request. For us to be able to assign these donations to your personal occasion, your guests should write an explicit purpose on the payment form, like ‘wedding John Brown’. If your guests desire a donation receipt, we will also need their names and complete addresses.
Put our donation box in an obvious place at your next party and transfer the money to the German Doctors. If you include a list of names and addresses and the amounts of donations, we will be happy to send donation receipts to your guests. Rest assured that we adhere to the effective regulations of the German Data Protection Law. We assure you that we do not give any addresses to third parties.
You are celebrating for a good cause, and we send you our very best wishes for a successful celebration. If you wish, we will send you a list with the names and addresses of all donors and the total amount they donated together. This gives you the opportunity to thank them for their generosity. Please note that we cannot send you the individual amounts people donated in accordance with data protection regulations.
