If you live in the EU but outside the UK, you may be able to maximise your gift through Transnational Giving Europe (TGE).
This is a collaborative giving scheme offered by a partnership of European foundations. It enables donors (both corporations and individuals) resident in one of the participating countries to offer financial support to non-profit organisations in other member countries. Beneficiaries benefit directly from the tax advantages provided for in the legislation of their country of residence.
Country-specific contact details for the scheme are available here.
The scheme is currently operational for donations from the following European countries:
- Belgium • Bulgaria • France • Germany • Hungary • Ireland • Italy • Netherlands • Poland • Romania • Slovakia • Switzerland • United Kingdom
