MAKE A DONATION

YOUR DONATION

The Alcuin Fund needs your support in order to facilitate educational initiatives in schools and further education, in Belgium and throughout Europe. You can donate to the Alcuin Fund for Schools from around the world. For many countries, the tax certificate that you receive after making your donation will enable you to reduce your tax payments in the country where you reside for tax purposes (see below). You can either allocate your donation freely to any of our educational programmes, or indicate a specific education project you wish to support. Please check beforehand to ensure it is eligible for assistance from the Alcuin Fund, by sending us an e-mail to contact@alcuinfonds.be

2. YOU ARE A EUROPEAN TAX RESIDENT (EXCLUDING BELGIUM, THE NETHERLANDS AND LUXEMBOURG): USE THE TGE NETWORK

WHAT IS THE TGE NETWORK?

Transnational Giving Europe is the European system that makes it possible to make cross-border donations that are eligible for a tax rebate in your country of residence for tax purposes. You can use it to donate between countries if there is a TGE partner in your country and in the country where the donation will be received. It is necessary for both TGE partners to make contact beforehand. For this reason, it is essential to send an e-mail to the Alcuin Fund to notify us of your donation before it is made.
As it is sheltered by the King Baudouin Foundation, recognised as being of public benefit in Belgium and a TGE partner, the Alcuin Fund for Schools can receive donations from European countries via TGE.
