We wanted to
become a foundation
for a long time...
finally, HERE WE ARE!

This change will extend our reach to more festivals and other innovative projects to build a more sustainable future and reintroduce responsibility to festivals and society as a whole. ♥

Coming Soon
For years our work has been predominantly volunteer-based and our funding has been limited to the festivals we work with and the personal funds of Psycleans founder, Viktor Balogh. However, as Psyclean has advanced and expanded, this income has become insufficient in supporting what we strive to achieve as a foundation. In 2018 we successfully launched our first crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the community tent which our volunteers use today.

THIS TIME IT’S ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN THAT. WE NEED TO KNOW: DO YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT PSYCLEAN IS DOING AND ARE YOU PREPARED TO HELP US MAKE IT HAPPEN?

Here are the most important areas that need your support:

MAKE AN IMPACT

Support the
project

In the future we would like to depend more on donations of the public we are working for. This way we have a better feedback about how much people actually want us to do what we do.
So yeah, in case you were wondering,
here is the button:

INFRASTRUCTURE

Our missions need a lot of equipment in order to function on the professional level we are aiming for. Trash pickers need to be replaced (1 cost between €30-€50), we use 100+ pair of gloves per season and the orange t-shirts are wearing out. All our electronics need professional care and even replacement after the dusty-rainy conditions they have to function in. The famous Psyclean Dome – our community center – needs repairs, washing and maintenance. If we want to split our team, we need one more, as well as the little team kitchen with all its accessories.

FUNDING NEEDED:

€5.000

STORAGE-WORKSHOP-GARAGE

To operate our project, we need space for our equipment, a workshop to create and invent, as well as a place for our vehicles for the winter. Our team needs space to come together for orientation meetings and we need some place to invite 3rd parties to as well. We are constantly trying to keep our costs as low as possible, that’s why we have chosen Hungary as our center of operations. Still, to have a space big enough for all our purposes costs far more, than we can manage with only salaries from festivals. Please help us in creating a home, where our fantasies can turn into reality and therefore into cool stuff for the festivals you are visiting in the summer!

FUNDING NEEDED:

€8.000

EMPLOYEES

The payments received from festivals make up for a basic salary for the months we are on the road and even give us a little extra for the month after the season. However, our work is not finished with the summer! The Psyclean Foundation is aiming to find and employ bright minds from all over the world to combat the garbage- problem on festivals with new solutions all the time. Some of these jobs are project-based, yet others require continuous work throughout the year. If we want the global issue of garbage tackled by smart people, we have to be able to sustain them and provide for them. Many believe, that it’s our hobby to create some of the cleanest festivals on the planet… well, it isn’t. Collecting stamps is a hobby… Psyclean is very demanding physical and mental work in an extreme environment. At this point we are struggling to pay the legal minimum wage, even to our only 2 employees, including our director.

FUNDING NEEDED:

€30.000

UPCYCLED WASTE STATIONS

Our bins are made of discarded tents. It takes a lot of effort to collect them, prepare them for upcycling and transporting them
to our workshop, where the real work begins: planning, washing, cutting, sewing, printing, equipping them with lights. This is cost- intensive, which lead to an all-around cost of €4400 just for the 30 prototype stations we used in 2019. They were not perfect, so repairs are in order, which aren’t free either. We aim to construct 100 stations, so 200 bins, in order to be able to do 2 festivals at the same time.

FUNDING NEEDED:

€10.000

CARS

We love our vehicles, their names are DJ and Lucy. These two vans carry all our team and infrastructure halfway across Europe every year. We maintain them properly and they get a full service twice per year to be safe and in good condition. This is much needed considering that we drive 15.000km+ in the season. Although festivals are paying the diesel for us to get there, it only covers 60% of our diesel costs.

FUNDING NEEDED:

€13.000

THE MAIN REASON
to become a foundation is to realize our biggest dream: the garbage-free festival!

THE CLEANCUBE

We would like to think bigger! The CleanCube is an extraordinary vehicle which would allow us to wash all cups, plates, cutlery and even the serviettes directly on the festival. By doing so, we could considerably decrease garbage produced by these events, while supplying visitors with a much nicer way to eat and drink. This is the biggest undertaking of Psyclean so far. The plans are made, the tests are done, now we have to make it happen. Due to the sheer size of the project we are going to involve everybody and we are hoping for support from:

  • EU
  • Governments
  • Local Governments
  • Other foundations
  • and…

FUNDING NEEDED:

€150.000
