Tax deductibility of donations

The Netherlands

Dutch taxpayers can donate to effective charities all around the world using Giving What We Can.

Donate via Giving What We Can

The money that can be claimed from a tax-deductible donation may enable you to be more generous than you initially thought.

Tax deductibility

One-off donations

One-off gifts equal to or greater than €60 are deductible if they total more than 1% of your income (or the income of you and your tax partner together if you have a partner) on an annual basis (up to a maximum of 10% of this).

Recurring donations

Recurring donations are tax deductible if the obligation is entered into through an agreement to donate a fixed amount for at least 5 years. If the beneficiary organization is ANBI registered, your donation will be deducted in box 1. For further information, see here .

You confirm this in advance with the organization via this form (NL) or this form (EN) . Please email with your completed form and we can complete our portion and return it to you.
