Our community

The Prince Claus Fund's mission of promoting cultural expression and creativity is something I strongly believe in, especially during these challenging times. As a humanitarian volunteer in Ukraine, I value their support for artists and the preservation of cultural heritage in conflicted areas. The positive changes and significant impact that artists are bringing to their communities are truly inspiring.

— Georgi Mahmurov, our Patron, an entrepreneur from Estonia.

Are my donations tax deductible?

The Prince Claus Fund is registered with the Dutch Tax Administration as an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (ABNI), or a cultural Public Benefit Organization (PBO). This designation allows all donations to the Fund to be tax-deductible in the Netherlands, with additional advantages for long-term contributions. As a private individual, your donation can be deducted at 125% of the amount donated from your taxable income. Additionally, you can combine your donations to multiple cultural organizations for these benefits. For more information, visit the Belastingdienst website.

Making periodic donations offers the maximum tax advantage. This involves contributing at least €100 per year for a minimum of five years. To determine your individual tax deductibility, please check the relevant guidelines.

You can find a calculation tool to see what your specific tax benefit would be here.  

What is the CBF seal of approval?

The CBF (Dutch Charities Regulator) grants a seal of approval to organizations that meet strict quality standards. This recognition signifies that the charity adheres to high standards of accountability and effectiveness. While requirements vary between larger and smaller organizations, about 80 percent of private donations are made to charities under CBF supervision. Donating to a CBF-approved charity ensures that your contributions are used responsibly, the organization is transparent, and it undergoes independent evaluations.

What's a periodic donation and how can I support you regularly?

Periodic donations are fully deductible from your taxable income, with no thresholds or maximum limits. A periodic donation involves committing to a fixed amount annually for at least five years. To set up a periodic donation, complete both copies of the 'Periodic Donation Agreement' form and send them to us. We will return one copy for your records.

What is your donation acceptance policy?

All donations are received by our Fundraising Department and assessed according to our Ethical Donation Policy. Each donation undergoes an investigation, including donor background and donation history, with more extensive checks for larger donations. 

Criteria for Acceptance of Donations: Donations must align with our mission, values, and legal standards. Legal counsel may be consulted for certain types of gifts. Donations that conflict with our mission, pose reputational risks, or have legal or ethical concerns which jeopardise the independence of the Fund may be rejected.  

Handling of Donations: Donations are carefully documented and used to support our activities. Transparent communication about received donations and their impact is a priority. Reasons for refusal are communicated clearly to donors when appropriate. 

Roles of Supervisory Board and Executive Director: The Supervisory Board oversees and approves this policy, with any revisions approved by the Director. The Executive Director ensures the policy's implementation and effective management of donations. 

Final Provisions: This policy is effective upon approval by the Board of Directors. The Fund reserves the right to revise the policy with Board approval. Our policy is drafted in accordance with laws, emphasizing transparency, integrity, and accountability.
