Are We Europe is registered as a non-profit foundation under Dutch law (stichting), which means that as a legal entity, Are We Europe cannot issue shares or have shareholders. 

Are We Europe was founded by Marije Martens, Mick ter Reehorst, Ties Gijzel and Kyrill Hartog, who are the foundation’s current board members.

Are We Europe is funded by tax-deductible monthly or single donations, small grants and the revenue from sales, memberships and our sister company Awe Studio.

As a registered non-profit (ANBI), we also provide more information on our organisation and finances, go here.

Products, subscriptions, donations

Our webstore has a selection of magazines that are still in stock, a number of partnered publications, and some of the printed publications we produced next to the magazine. 

Unfortunately, we have no plans to produce new prints of old issues. We’d prefer to look forward to new publications, and perhaps even cover old themes in new and exciting ways. You can still read all our old issues for free on our digital magazine page.

We used to offer a subscription as part of our membership program, which was discontinued. For now, we’re focusing on figuring out how best to achieve our mission, which means we will not be publishing as frequently as we have in the past. For this reason, we cannot promise a regular publication as you would get with a subscription.

Whenever we publish a new magazine, we will make it available for free online, and you will be able to buy a copy in our webstore.

If you would like to provide us with regular financial support, you can set up a monthly donation from as low as 3 euros. By donating monthly, you provide security for our core team, allowing them to do the work behind the scenes. You also enable us to keep our content free of charge, because we strongly believe important stories should not be kept behind a paywall.

You can change the amount of your monthly donation up or down, or cancel it entirely without giving any notice or justification. Simply send an email to with your donation number (you’ll find this in the order confirmation we sent you after you donated for the first time) and let us know what you would like to change your donation to. 

If you’ve made a mistake during the process of making your donation, send an email to with the donation details, and we can transfer your donation back to you, minus the payment fee we were charged by our payment provider. You can find more information about this here.

If you would like to cancel a monthly donation and get (some of) your previous donations refunded, please read our terms and conditions and get in touch with us.
