Become our friend
Firstly, we are happy with all the gifts and donations we receive! But we think it’s extra special if you want to support our work for a longer period. We see that as an act of long-term friendship and especially for the children in Nepal you belong to a special group of friends. That’s why: become a member of our friends club!
This is only possible if you pay taxes in the Netherlands!
How does that work then? Well, friends support our work through a tax-free periodic donation. You may deduct a periodic donation from the tax in its entirety. This is in contrast to a ‘regular’ gift, for which there is a threshold amount. To be eligible for this tax benefit, the periodic donation must meet these conditions:
- You donate a fixed amount per year for 5 years (or longer); the height thereof is completely free and to be determined by yourself. You can also decide whether you want to donate that amount all at once or, for example, in monthly instalments.
- The donation is recorded in a donation agreement that is signed by the donor and recipient. It is not necessary to record in a notarial deed.
You can mail the completed and signed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it by post to Stichting Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces, Brechtje Spiegelerf 4, 3813 NL Amersfoort. Afterwards, you will receive the signed version in the same way.
Tax return (in Holland)
In addition to the agreement completed and signed by both parties, you need the following information for your tax return:
- Tax name: Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation
- Location: Amersfoort
- RSIN (fiscal number): 820528298
- Transaction number: your personal transaction number can be found on the donation agreement.
- There is no transaction number for a donation agreement that was recorded for 2014.
- If you have any questions, feel free to ask them at email@example.com.
Once a year we organize a special evening for our friends. We then provide an update of our work, there is room for questions and further conversation. Date and program for 2023 are not yet known. As soon as the date for the Friends Evening 2023 is set, we will of course inform you immediately. See you then!
