For the realisation of all our projects, we can count on an extensive network of unpaid volunteers and a large number of loyal donors and regular partners. In this way, we manage to limit the operating costs in Belgium to the absolute minimum (less than 4% of all expenditure). All other funds go directly to our projects and our paid local staff in Benin. Extensive information about our income and how it is spent can also be found on this website. We are quite proud of this way of working and realise that it makes a big difference to a lot of donors.
Would you like to make a financial contribution?
That is possible! For every donation as of EUR 40, we will provide you with a tax certificate (in accordance with Article 145 of the Income Tax Code 1992).
No more gift or inheritance tax
As of 1 July 2021, the Foundation will no longer pay gift or inheritance tax on gifts or legacies from people living in Flanders. And that is of course good news for us!
The new measure of the Flemish Government means that we can invest 100% of your donation or legacy in our operations and projects. So, you can really make a difference for us.
At the same time, the tax regulation on duo legacies changes. As of 1 July 2021, they will no longer provide any tax benefits. Have you included a duo bequest in your will? Then be sure to review it with your notary. There is a risk that the Foundation must pay so much inheritance tax that at the end, it is left with nothing from your bequest and has to reject your legacy.
If you live in Brussels or Wallonia, the rates and tax regulations concerning duo legacies remain unchanged, even after 1 July 2021.
