Financial support

How can you apply for financial support?

You can only apply for financial support after you have registered your project. In your ARUBA DOET account you will find a button called: "Financial support". You can create or open your account by clicking the button "Login" on the top right of the website.

  • Note! Applications can be submitted until January 23rd, 2023 and for Early Doeti's it is Januari 6th, 2023. Funding is provided on a first come first serve basis, so please send in your paperwork early!

  4. You need at least 5 new volunteers per project.
  5. Only one financial support will be granted per address/location.

Note: even though we would love to help as many organizations as possible, we have a limited budget. If you do not meet the above criteria, you will not be eligible for financial support.
