Gangway e.V. Straßensozialarbeit in Berlin welcomes the initiative Transparent Civil Society (ITZ) and supports them in their efforts to increase transparency in nonprofit organizations.

The disclosure of the objectives, of the sources and uses of funds and of the decision-relevant personal names in charitable organizations is a step in terms of transparency.

Because there is no disclosure requirement for charities in Germany, we believe the publication of ten basic points compiled by the ITZ on a voluntary basis is an important and correct step.
