First full-time team

€41,467 of €72,000 goal

Raised by 313 people in 4 months
Created July 29, 2018
Do you believe in Europe? Do you believe in the need for a new voice in politics? If yes, now it is time to act!

Since the founding moment, our force has been that hundreds of volunteers drive our organization on a daily basis. We are now already 15.000 supporters across 32 countries. However, ahead of a campaign, Volt needs to take it to the next level, by having dedicated full time members working to shape the future, not be shaped by the past.

Thanks to your donations, the full timers started working on September 1st. This could have never happened without all of you! But, we are not fully there yet - we need more funds to keep the team active until the European Parliament Elections in May 2019. 

A full-timer costs us around EUR 2,000, amounting to EUR 72.000 until the European Parliamentary elections (September to May). This is really just the core team. If we receive more funds, we will hire additional staff. Help us to grow the movement to more than 1 million people at the time of the election, such that we can win the 25 seats in the European Parliament next year.

Please participate to our crowdfunding campaign to support our first full-time team. We aim to reach 72,000 euros by the 1st of January 2019

Here is who we hired:

Dear donors,

This is just an update that we are only EUR 500 away from reaching 40 thousand Euros for our team!

Thanks again to all of you. We, the full-timers feel very thankful for the support so far. We have started working in Brussels, in a small co-working space that we got for a decent price, and it is beautiful to be able to work and sit together after such a long time of working only online. The team spirit is strong, the list of tasks endless, and the motivation high!

We also feel the responsibility of your donation - it is a strong driver to make our shared idea a reality, to turn this movement into a large-scale and solid change for all of us, and to give all our amazing volunteers across the continent the best possible support.

If you have not yet redeemed your lunch, letter, t-shirt, or email, please send me all necessary information to damian.boeselager@volteuropa.org. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our work, please also feel free to reach out.

If you again feel like supporting our cause, I set up the crowdfunder for our General Assembly in Amsterdam ( www.gofundme.com/volt-ams) just a second ago. There we mainly collect to be able to support the travel cost for some of our members and a public stage in Amsterdam.

Thanks again for your great support & all the best to wherever you sit in Europe,

Damian
VP of Volt
