Solidarity-based contribution

Your financial contribution enables Students Organizing for Sustainability (SOS) to support and connect the members of the GO movement in a way that’s inclusive. Considering the varying financial capacities of GOs and GO initiatives, we opted for a solidarity-based model: this means you can choose which amount seems appropriate to you, given your annual budget and willingness to contribute to the movement.

All movement channels are freely available also to those who are unable to contribute financially, so your choice of contribution does not affect what channels you can access.

If you cannot contribute financially at the moment but still want to join, let us know if and by when you expect to receive a budget.

The money is used to pay for the working hours of the Green Office Movement Coordinator (as SOS staff) to organise the above-mentioned channels and promote the expansion of the movement. In the future, as more GOs join, this may be used to increase GO Movement coordination capacity or offer support funds to GO initiatives or projects.

Remember to include this contribution in your annual budget.
