Stegreif e.V.

What would Stegreif be without its friends and supporters! As a non-profit organisation, the success of our work depends to a large extent on our supportive community.

If you’d like to assist our work financially, you've come to the right place. There are various ways to help us: You can provide support directly with donations, or become a part of our Stegreif Family as a regular sustaining member and gain unique insights into our work. We are also very pleased to receive requests for cooperation with foundations and companies and would like to thank our loyal board of trustees as well as all the wonderful supporters who have already made many projects possible.

As a non-profit organisation, donations to Stegreif e.V. are tax-deductible. For donations of 200€ or more, you will of course receive a donation receipt if you include your German address and the term 'donation' in the reason for payment. For donations under 200€, proof of payment is sufficient for recognition by the German tax authority.

Thanks to your donations, we are able to develop new productions and educational formats and provide our orchestra with long-term security. Especially during the pandemic, your donations have made an existential contribution to the survival of the orchestra.

All donations reach us directly and thus enable both social security and creative development - thank you very much!
