Tax deduction for donors of a cultural organisation

  • A single donation: 

According to the Gift Act (2012) an individual gift of maximum € 5000 a year to an organization with ANBI status may be multiplied by 125%. Gifts above € 5000 are deductible without multiplier. A 1% threshold and 10% ceiling applies for tax-deductible gifts. A Torchbearer supporting the Fund with a gift of € 10.000, effectively pays € 4150 after tax deduction.

  • Maximum benefit with periodic donations: 

Periodic donations are completely deductible from the income tax, without a threshold of 1% or ceiling of 10%.

  • Periodic donations form: 

Since 2014 no notarial deed is required to process periodic donations. A written agreement between you and the Prince Claus Fund is sufficient. An example of such an agreement you can find here.
