Help ISPO acquire the charity status!
Besides supporting ISPO in its mission to improve the quality of life for people with impaired mobility, your donation could help ISPO become a charitable organisation.
ISPO is a global, multidisciplinary, non-governmental organisation legally based in Denmark. Under Danish law, the requirement to become a charity is to receive 100 donations of minimum EUR 30 each every year (from January to December). Donations are welcomed from all around the world, but only European donations will serve this purpose.
The number of donations will be updated on a regular basis and donors will be publicly acknowledged unless they opt to stay anonymous.
To achieve the status of charity in 2019, ISPO would need to receive 100 European donations by 31 December 2019. You can choose to support any fund listed below.
