Giving across Europe

Donate tax-efficiently
in Europe

Even charities abroad can benefit from your home country's tax-breaks

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) enables donors resident in one of the participating countries to support charitable organisations in other member countries, while benefiting directly from the tax advantages provided for in their country of residence.

To use the scheme, you must:

  • be resident in any of the participating countries
  • donate to a charitable organisation in any of the other countries in the network

Donations made through the scheme are then eligible to receive the tax benefit of the country you are living in.

A fee will be deducted from your donations – 5% up to 50,000 euros and 1% above this.  This is capped at a maximum fee of  6500 euros. 

Currently Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania and Poland participate in the scheme.
