Make a donation
Would you, as an individual, a business or an organisation, like to contribute to one of the Funds managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, or a project account, or one of the Foundation’s particular activities, either in Belgium and/or abroad? If so, you can make a donation safely and quickly.
A donation and tax certificate
A donation is a transfer to others of some element of heritage, without any advantage being incurred by the donor. The form most widely known is a cash donation, often in the form of a bank transfer. Subscriptions of various types, including to magazines, and transfers that give the right in return to an advantage for the donor, cannot be considered as donations.
Donations of 40 euros or more made to the King Baudouin Foundation, are entitled to a tax deduction of 45% on the amount effectively transferred and this is recorded on the tax certificate issued by the King Baudouin Foundation.
The tax certificate relating to all of the donations you may have made to the King Baudouin Foundation during a given year is issued during February of the following year. Given the growing number of requests from our donors, and with a concern for ecology, we now only send out receipts for donations of 1,000 euros or more.
For what and how to make a donation?
You can make two types of donations:
