From time to time I’d like to work for free for local charitable organizations.
I wonder how I could/should do this? (If this depends on the country, I’m interested in Germany.)
- bill my work as usual, let them pay me and donate the money back to them?
- create a bill with 100% discount (sum = 0)?
- don’t create a bill at all?
I don’t think it will be needed, but just to make sure: I don’t want to be liable for anything that could result from my work. For example, when I install a security update for their websites’ CMS and it contains a bug so that they can no longer send mails or whatever. When I get paid for my work, I’ll make sure to fix it as soon as possible. But when I donated my work, I don’t want to have to fix it. How would this be possible? Could I add a clause in my offer? What should it contain?
