Since the founding of PowerShift, we received funding from the following organizations:


Landesstelle für Entwicklungszusammenarbeit (der Senatsverwaltung für Wirtschaft, Energie und Betriebe Berlin)


Contributions and donations from other organizations
Particular activities are also funded by our co-organizers and co-publishers. The Coordination Office AK Rohstoffe is partly funded by contributions of the supporting organizations.

Private contributions and donations
Additionally, PowerShift is funded by our member contributions. Certain activities, such as the workshop on raw materials policy and raw materials justice is partly financed by its participants.
Last, but not least, private donations are crucial for our overall funding.

Only donations and member contributions make it possible for us to cover the amounts of self-funding and co-funding, that are required in order to apply at the abovely mentioned foundations and donors. This means, every donated Euro will be topped up by several Euros of allocated project funding.
