Collections: Permission required

Would you like to collect donations in cash or in kind? Then you need permission for this.

Collections are subject to authorisation in Rhineland-Palatinate if collected through direct action from person to person (e.g. in the case of front door or street collections).


Information and evaluations on fundraising organisations are provided by the German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI). According to its own information, the DZI documents in its welfare archive about 1,000 donation organizations of the social, especially humanitarian-charitable sector. The DZI responds to inquiries from private individuals, companies, authorities and the media against reimbursement of the costs.

Further information options are also offered by the German Donation Council e. V.
