Donations to the Border Violence Monitoring Network

The finances of the Border Violence Monitoring Network are based on:

·         Funds from foundations and grants*.

·         Member fees from BVMN’s legal frame Rigardu e.V.

·         Donations from our supporters

The Network makes use of its funds to employ thirteen members of staff on part-time contracts. The paid staff are responsible for the running of BVMN, and are supported by a wide volunteer base. As a transnational organisation, BVMN volunteers and staff are obliged to travel – for operational purposes -, to strategic locations across the field and, occasionally, to key advocacy fora. This is why the other part of the fundings is used to reimburse the above trips, essential to the efforts of BVMN. As a Network, we depend on our members and their time, commitment, and energy to conduct our projects. But sadly, without further financial support our operations are not sustainable. Find out how to support us below.

* For this Fiscal Year (September ’21 – August ’22) BMVN received support from Open Society Foundation – Guerrilla Foundation – Brot Foundation – Whole Global Being Fund – Safe Passage Foundation – Fund For Global Human Rights – Pro Asyl -The United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture.
