Good Reasons to Become a Sustaining Member

Sanitation is a human right and essential for a healthy, dignified life and an intact environment. The topic deserves more priority and attention.

Contributions from sustaining members are an important pillar for enabling German Toilet Organization's work. Due to the own financial resources that most donors expect GTO to contribute to projects, a single membership fee can support several activities at the same time. Beyond this, GTO can utilise these financial contributions to realise projects, which are essential, but for which there are no funding pools. A small contribution can thereby have a huge effect.

Thanks for your support!


In Germany, the membership fee is tax-deductible as a donation. For annual membership fees over 300 €, GTO will issue an official donation receipt at the beginning of the following calendar year. For donations of less than 300 €, the tax and revenue office will accept a copy of your bank transfer statement as a proof of donation. The sustaining membership is extended by a further year unless you terminate it in writing by the end of November.
