Make a donation

Would you, as an individual, a business or an organisation, like to support an initiative or a Fund managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, 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.

An unconditional donation entitles the donor to tax relief, subject to certain conditions and in accordance with the tax legislation of the country concerned.
 
The King Baudouin Foundation can issue tax certificates in Belgium, the Netherlands, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, France and Denmark. Each of these countries has its own tax legislation. To find out how tax certificates are issued, click on your country of residence.

Cleaning up farming in Benin and the rest of Africa

To achieve that result, we had to convince farmers, because initially they were very hesitant to use the organic products.Today, they follow us, especially since they no longer have to wear protective clothing to avoid burns caused by the chemical products. BioPhyto products are better for their health and that of the population, which can now count on healthy and organic food. And that means great long-term progress for health, the environment and the economy."
