Information for donors

Donors from Germany can donate tax-deductible funds to non-profit organisations abroad registered with us via Transnational Giving.

Feel free to contact us if your desired organisation is not yet included in the drop-down list in the form. This is merely a selection of the numerous non-profit organisations that are already registered in the TG programme.

Ways to donate

1. You can use the donation form directly online via:

  • PayPal,
  • Credit card,
  • Instant bank transfer,
  • Donate direct debit to the Maecenata Foundation or to any organisation registered in the Transnational Giving programme.

2. Bank Transfer

You can use the following account for donations to the Maecenata Foundation and the projects supported in the Transnational Giving programme: Account holder: Maecenata Foundation

IBAN: DE89 1003 0500 1061 0007 01
Bankhaus Löbbecke

Reference: ‘Name of the recipient organisation, [address of the donor for the donation confirmation].’

Important: Please always state the desired recipient organisation in the purpose of the transfer! If you would like to receive a donation receipt, please also state your address.

For donations in foreign currencies GBP, CHF and USD, please contact us first. Due to the bank fees incurred for donations in foreign currencies, this method is only advisable if the donation is higher.

Are you planning to make a larger donation? Please contact us personally in advance to guarantee a smooth process.

Donation receipt

Your donation through the Maecenata Foundation is tax deductible. If you provide us with your contact details, we will automatically issue donation receipt for you.

For donations up to € 300.00 (donations in 2020: up to € 200), a simple proof of donation is sufficient. You can download the simple donation declaration from the Maecenata Foundation here (in German). In order to save postage and administration costs, we ask you to make use of this option.

Donation transfer

The donations are collected and paid out quarterly to the recipient organisation. In doing so, we will also provide the recipient organisation with the details of your donation (date of receipt of the donation, amount, name, address) as far as we have them.
