How to support our organization

mental Health in Human Rights is a non-endowed, project-based foundation. In the interests of the people we serve, GIP also seeks to keep its operating budget low, while simultaneously ensuring the quality of its operations. Because we do not currently have an endowment, we are dependent on charitable donations and project funds. We welcome your support, both large and small!

Financial support

The foundation is fully dependent on donations from private donors, foundations and other sponsors. It is looking for alternative ways of fundraising to make its work more sustainable, such as crowd funding, fundraising through social media and marketing the logotype on garments and other products.

You can make your donation online: 

Donations can be transferred to the following bank account in The Netherlands:

Bank: ING

Account #: NL46 INGB 0006 0707 13

Account holder: Federation Global Initiative on Psychiatry

BIC of the bank: INGBNL2A

Checks drawn on a US bank can be made out to “GIP-USA” and sent to our Netherlands address. Our partner GIP-USA has 501(c) status and therefore donations are tax-deductible.

ANBI - Charitable status

FGIP-Human Rights in Mental Health is an organization under development. Founded as a separate legal entity in December 2010 it functioned mainly as part of GIP-Hilversum in 2011 and 2012. In 2013 the separation was completed and in 2014 we started functioning in full force.

As a result our earlier financial reports give only a very superficial image of our organization.

Expertise and In-kind support

Providing Expertise:
Human Rights and Mental Health-FGIP and its projects often benefit from pro-bono or reduced rate services from mental health and financial professionals, for activities such as training, assessments and other project tasks.

We also very much welcome some kinds of in-kind support. Particularly useful are subscriptions to high-quality psychiatric journals or other publications or assistance in translating selected professional publications into various languages for broader reach.
