Tax deductibility of donations


The organization Effektiv Spenden allows German taxpayers to donate to effective charities all around the world in a tax-deductible way and provides donation receipts for all such donations.

Donate through Effektiv Spenden

If you pay taxes in Germany, then tax-deductible donations of up to 20% of your annual income can be claimed as tax-exempt (donations of over 20% can be carried into the next fiscal year). The money that can be claimed from a tax-deductible donation may enable you to be more generous than you initially thought.

We recommend Giving What We Can members who donate via Effektiv Spenden report their donations on their Pledge Dashboard so that they can track their pledge.
