Why become a monthly donor?
GCR needs your support.
By giving an amount of your choice every month you contribute significantly in GCR’s function since its resources are limited while beneficiaries’ needs continuously increase. GCR’s resources stem mainly from European programmes but they do not suffice to cover emergency needs regarding mainly the provision of necessary services (emergency interpreter, medication, essential goods like diapers or baby formula milk, etc.) or urgent interventions (cases of illegal detention, emergent administrative interventions, etc.).
To become easily and quickly one of the main GCR supporters through fixed and automatic monthly contribution, you can simply ask your bank to inform you about the possibility of direct debit. It only takes a few minutes to fill in the request form and activate the service. You can therefore choose an amount for your monthly contribution to GCR and significantly participate in GCR’s efforts to meets its objectives!
How to make a one-time donation?
Choose not only the amount you wish to donate to GCR but also the purpose of your donation. For instance, you can make a donation for the implementation of a specific action (awareness event, essentials goods’ provision for vulnerable cases of single-parent families, etc.) or for the support of a GCR service (centre to promote refugees’ integration “Pyxis”, Refugee Reception Centre and its team of Interpreters, Social and Legal Aid Services). For each donation you will receive a receipt but also a written report about its use. In case of a bank deposit, you should simply inform us by calling 210 3800990 so we can record your information and send you by post the receipt.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?
“Corporate Social Responsibility is a concept whereby companies integrate voluntary social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders.” (European Commission, Green Paper, 2001)
It is now widely accepted that Corporate Social Responsibility benefits companies on many ways. An increasing number of researches show that those that choose to invest in programmes with a strong social impact reap significant benefits not only in competitiveness but also in promotion and empowerment of their corporate identity. The responsible behaviour towards society can render a company more resilient in crisis periods, as well as more attractive to consumers and capable employees, as long as it contributes in the protection of its business reputation and offers increased access to new potential sources of income. GCR relies on CSR and believes in the power of cooperation to achieve common social goals.
