The international volunteer services would not be possible without sufficient funding. A voluntary service abroad costs about € 10,000 plus the own financial contribution of the partner. A voluntary service in Germany is more expensive with around € 15,000.
Both State and Church contribute with significant financial resources to enable the volunteer service. However, there is the need of own financial contribution. Here SoFiA e.V. is dependent on donations of at least € 60,000 per year.

The following figures show the revenues and expences. It can be seen from the financial report and the budget plan where the money is spent and where it comes from.
