A legitimate question, because we do need a lot of money indeed to realize all the projects we are currently working on and to start up future projects. That is why we will explore all kinds of methods for fundraising, big and small. After all, everything helps, right?
So, we participate in small events such as fairs, flea markets etc. to sell some hand-made products or second-hand articles which are donated by supporters of Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation. Of course we participate in these events at the lowest possible costs or for free, because we absolutely do not want to spend more money than is strictly necessary. So, we discuss beforehand with the organizer of the event what are the options for discounts or free participation and when we are ok with their conditions we participate. All yields after costs go to Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation.
Next to that we organize activities for fundraising ourselves. A good example is the trip to the land of one thousand and one nights which you can find on the travel page of this website. We composed a very luxurious and interesting trip for our guests, and the yields after costs go to Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation. And, there are about 1 million other things we can think about to organize, including concerts, charity balls etc. etc. Our creativity is endless here…
Another option is recruiting donors. We ask people to support our foundation one or more times, or contribute each year a certain amount to the foundation for which in return they receive for example a few times per year a news magazine about Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation.
Finally, one of the most important sources of income for Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation is the support we receive from companies and other organizations, big and small. Their support can be of course financially, like Zagroz Equipment Engineering BV does, but donating products, goods, services, expertise etc. are also common.
Wonderful examples are the support Simba Nature Protection and Education Foundation received already from Bakker Ontwerp and Prima IT for developing our website and the long-term cooperation with Natuurmuseum Fryslân for re-establishing the nature museum in Yazd.
We are so grateful for all this valuable support and therefore you can find the websites of these contributors at the end of the contribute page on our website.
