The Dutch government encourages donating to charity by making them fully deductible on your income tax. How high that deducation is, depends on whether your donation is periodic or one-time.
On top of that, donations to a cultural ANBI institution like ours get an extra deduction. In order to calculate the deductible item, you may increase the amount of the donations made by 25%, up to a maximum of €1.250.
You can determine your benefit with this ANBI gift calculation module (Dutch).
Periodic gift agreement
Registering your recurring donation with a periodic gift agreement (Dutch: Overeenkomst periodieke gift in geld) offers additional tax benefits. If you want to do this, please:
- Download this agreement,
- Complete it,
- Sign it digitally,
- Send it to us via email.
Alternatively you can print the agreement, fill it out, scan it, and email it.
Due to COVID-19, we are working remotely and don’t have regular access to our office. For this reason, processing your periodic gift agreement happens via email instead of post.
To make a tax-deductible contribution in the USA, you can donate through our partner organization: the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Please include in the message box that the donation is for Musicians Without Borders, and notify us of your donation at [email protected]
