A good "fairy" for all volunteers in the district of Starnberg


"Civil engagement is becoming more and more important," says Starnberg District Administrator Stefan Frey. Therefore, the district office is now setting up a new contact point for volunteer work and commitment.

"Civil engagement is becoming more and more important," says Starnberg District Administrator Stefan Frey.

Therefore, the district office is now setting up a new contact point for volunteer work and commitment.

Starnberg – With “fee”, the Starnberg District Office has created a new point of contact for all questions relating to volunteering and commitment.

"fee" means "department for voluntary work + commitment".

In the announcement, the district is quite poetic: "Many people have probably wished to meet a fairy.

At least volunteers and everyone involved in voluntary work are no longer denied this wish.”

District Administrator Stefan Frey welcomes the new contact point: “Civil engagement is becoming more and more important, especially against the background of increasingly scarce public coffers.

I therefore consider the networking and support of all those involved through a dedicated contact point to be particularly important in order to make the diversity and opportunities for volunteer work visible.

And this is exactly where the volunteering and commitment department comes in, and I'm really glad that it can now be found in the district office."

Anja Holzgreve and Michaela Frua from the specialist office took care of the concerns of the volunteers and informed interested parties about opportunities for volunteer work, the district office said.

And: “Whether networking or mediation, they advise and support clubs, associations, organizations and initiatives.

They are also the contact persons for the city of Starnberg and the municipalities in the district.” The two have already introduced themselves to the mayors and explained the concept at a staff meeting.

Anja Holzgreve brings with her extensive experience and expertise in the areas of engagement consulting and volunteer management from her many years of work at a volunteer agency.

"The aim of the 'fee' is

to promote, support and further develop civic engagement in the district in all its diversity," she says.

“We offer a comprehensive range of advice and mediation services for everyone involved.

The focus will be on a newly developed platform that will enable us to bring the various players together and network them – easily and efficiently.” Another concern of the specialist department: to promote the recognition and appreciation of civic engagement.

"An essential part of our culture of recognition is the issue of the Bavarian volunteer card," says Michaela Frua, who has been involved in the development and introduction of the volunteer card in the district since 2013.

When it comes to volunteering and commitment, you have to constantly develop and be open to new things.

The volunteer card in the district of Starnberg has been around for ten years now.

"In this anniversary year, we will say 'thank you' to our volunteers with many interesting activities." According to the press release, Michaela Frua took over the acquisition of business partners more than ten years ago and thus gained a solid base of partners that offer perks and discounts for volunteers.

The "fee" can be reached in the district office by email at and at (0 81 51) 14 87 73 92 (Anja Holzgreve) and 14 87 76 88 (Michaela Frua).
