Finally: We have some great news at ASMAA!

Months of work has led to our current position! Below, you'll find different tools to assist us all, in raising much needed funds. Just to remind all, ASMAA receives no funds from government, big businesses or foundations to support us in our work.

After months of looking for new fund raising tools to assist ASMAA in raising the funds that we need so as to be able to really do all that needs to be done to protect our oceans, our land, our health, our local economy and our way of life, we have now a basket of options available which will make all of our supporters life easier to contribute to the financial well-being of our causes.


But before I tell you more, let me start by thanking each and everyone that has ever donated to ASMAA. If you haven’t received any of your donation receipts for 2017, so that you can claim it in your financial year-end submission to the Receiver of Revenue of your country, please let us know by return email.


Our current financial position is as follows

  1. We are still short of 1385-00€ (which should have been paid by no later than the 8th of February. (We now running nearly two weeks late with some of our contractual obligations which is putting tremendous stress on us) If you can help reduce this burden by making a donation by no later than Friday 23 February. We will be grateful.

  2. On the anti-oil drilling cases, we are now also seriously in the red with our legal team. We are short 3,690€ to pay them. Currently we have raised 272,00€ already in donations just in the past few days, but I’m sure you will agree we have a way to go before being back in the black in our legal fund.

If you would like to pay the legal firm directly you may do so. In this case your donation needs to be at least 500€ or more. Send us an email and we will give you all the relevant account details and payment reference that you need to use.

If your donation is less than 500€ you can use our Paypal account using your Paypal account or a Credit Card, or do a direct transfer to our bank account, or via Facebook using your credit card. (Although Facebook only transfers funds to us twice a month, and only after a minimum threshold of 100€ has been met)


So will YOU help ASMAA to meet our financial obligations?

Here’s how easier we have made it for you!


For direct financial contributions we still have the traditional methods of PayPal and Direct Bank Transfers.
