Solidarity Fund

Some bridgebuilders need financial support in order to attend the Summit. During our last Summit, you feedbacked that we should invite more Community Heroes and that our family members would be willing to support this financially. Hence, we invite you to make a donation to support those who could otherwise not join us.

What do we do?

The primary goal of our gathering is to have joy. For those arriving on Thursday, we will start with a joint dinner in the evening. Most bridgebuilders will arrive on Friday afternoon or evening. In workshops, we will talk about our impact, ideas for improvements, new initiatives and our strategy. You may expect a colorful mix of workshops, outdoor activities and inspiring moments. The program is made by Bridgebuilders for Bridgebuilders so everyone is invited to contribute a topic. Take a look at our draft agenda and review our lessons learnt from the last Summit on Teamwork.

Where will we sleep?

Allerheiligen offers rooms of different sizes and standards. Our participation fee (EUR 50,00 per person and night) includes accommodation in four-bed rooms with shared bathrooms in Barbarossa guest house. Single, double and family rooms are available in the guest houses Löwenherz and Villa Schauenburg for a small surcharge. You can select your preferred room in the pre-registration form below.
