Where does your money from the crowdfunding campaing go?

The C3S is dedicated to offering transparency. You trust us, and you proved it during the crowdfunding campaign by entrusting us with almost 118.000 Euro. Now it is our turn.

We want to show you which costs were already covered from your money, and which expenditure still needs to be made.

The balance also demonstrates that we must fill a gap until the end of the year if we want to receive the maximum funding from the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. To be precise: It is all about an additional full-time position that we need to finance.

We are still unable to confirm the definite amount that was raised through the crowdfunding campaign, because we need to be officially registered at the local district court first. Then we will receive the money from Startnext which has been contributed for shares.

Without much ado, here comes the full balance:

and the foundation

Revenues 149.546 €
Expenses -20.635 €

As you see, the amount of 71.089 € is missing, and we must have it before the end of the year. This means that we have to make a huge effort in order to reach our ambitious goal.

If your declarations of membership continue to come in, as numerous they did during the last couple of days, we can do it. Let’s go!
