Like every year, La Contre-Voie makes financial contributions to other organizations. This article features those we have chosen to support in 2023.
Find out more about the structures we have supported in previous years: 2021, 2022.
We usually devote 15-20% of our budget surplus to donations to organizations we wish to support. This year, our budget for this purpose in January 2023 is 260 euros.
🔗La Contre-Voie supports Wiquaya and DeuxFleurs
After consultation, and following a call for proposals sent out through our internal channels, the Contribution Committee has decided to distribute this budget as follows:
- 100 € to Deuxfleurs, a CHATONS that hosts services and develops software such as garage;
- 160 € to Wiquaya, an association raising awareness of Internet privacy for queer/lgbti+ people.
We hope that this gesture, though symbolic, will enable you to discover these associations, or even contribute to them in your turn.
🔗On budget allocation
Until now, we had chosen to allocate 15-20% of our surplus to donations to other structures. With the increase in our budget linked to our new roadmap, we will be reviewing this method of calculation for subsequent years, taking inspiration from initiatives such as Copie Publique.
We are also considering shifting our accounting year to run from September to August rather than from January to December, for practical reasons linked to the organization of our donation campaigns.
Our next financial year will therefore be shorter than usual (January to August) to make this transition. For this reason, there will be no budget allocated to donations to other structures for this financial year, as we still plan to give once a year and at the end of the year.
🔗About our donation campaign
We launched our donation campaign at the beginning of December and managed to reach half of our target, as of December 25! Thank you all for your contributions, which enable us to cover the costs of our services and help us prepare our new projects.
We would especially like to thank the associations Kidideux and Framasoft for their generous donations of €5,000 and €500 respectively, as well as the cooperative Scopyleft for its donation of €1,000! These organizations are now listed on our Our Patrons page.
You still have a few days before the end of 2023 to drop your star on our participative constellation! If you’d like to give us the means to carry out our activities, you can make a donation.
