Support The Catboat
Talking about money .... Without your donation, we cannot buy food or toys for the cats, heat the boats or, in fact, do anything. We receive no local or national government assistance, so we are entirely dependent upon your donations. Please help us.
Naturally, you can make a donation in person if you visit de Poezenboot (the Catboat). But you can also transfer money to our bank account NL82 INGB 0005 0855 15, or even set up a standing order. Or consider one of the other ways of helping us listed below.
You can consider becoming a donor You will of course be kept informed of the ups and downs of the Poezenboot through our newspaper, which you receive twice a year. You can already be a donor for only 20 euros a year, all you have to do is sign up. The easiest way to do that is via the website. You give us the assignment and you decide how much and how often you make a donation. Adjusting or deregistering is arranged with 1 e-mail. If you do not have Internet, please call us.
