ANBI

Sounds for freedom is registered as a stichting (foundation) under Dutch law. 
Our ANBI application was submitted to the 'Belastingdienst' in June 2022. We hope to have a cultural ANBI status in the short term and will communicate the progress on this page.


An ANBI (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling) status, in English referred to as a Public Benefits Organization (PBO), has the advantage that gifts to ANBI to beneficiaries are deductible for income tax or corporate tax for Dutch donors. Under certain conditions, ANBI's are also eligible for an exemption from inheritance and gift tax, the transfer tax and for a reduction in energy tax. Sounds for freedom doesn’t pay inheritance tax or gift tax, so 100% of your contribution goes to support the work we do.

Even more important for us: with the ANBI status we show that we are a pure and transparant organization that carries out activities based on the public interest and that a selected board supervises this.

Our mission is to be of help to those who feel captivated. This can be an inner freedom or literally inspiring people to break down their walls and take their chances in life, take their power back. Our music projects focus on refugee children, women, teenage girls and children in abusive situations. 


Music provides freedom in emotional ways to release inner obstacles and therefore give space for growth. It heals emotional wounds. It also inspires people to take steps that help them to evolve. And it brings people together, form communities. Any form of music is a therapy for the soul.
