Would you like to support us with a one-time or periodic donation? This is possible in a fiscally attractive way: donors of an ANBI may deduct their gifts from their income or corporate tax. From 2012, donors to cultural ANBIs will be able to deduct an additional amount from their gifts. From 1 January 2012, when calculating your deduction, you may increase your gift by 25%. The maximum increase per year is € 1,250. Do you make both an ordinary gift and a periodical gift to a cultural ANBI? Also in this case, the amount of the increase is at most € 1,250. You can find more information on the website of the tax authorities.
Until 2014, you could only deduct a periodic donation (for a period of at least five years, also known as an annuity) if you had recorded this at the notary's office. This is no longer required for periodic gifts as of 2014. You can choose whether you want to set down the donation via the notary or via a written agreement with the institution or association to which you are making the donation.
