Etra tax deductions when donating

Did you know that when you donate to us, you can make use of tax benefits? Sounds for freedom is a cultural ANBI.  A cultural institution can apply to the Tax and Customs Administration for the status of cultural ANBI. ANBI stands for Public Benefit Institution. According to the Tax and Customs Administration, the Sounds for Freedom Foundation meets the requirements and is therefore an institution with the cultural ANBI status


If you, as an individual or company, donate to a cultural ANBI, you are entitled to extra tax benefits. A donation to a cultural ANBI can be claimed as a deduction for income tax. As a private donor (or sole proprietorship), you may multiply the deductible amount by 1.25.

Calculation examples tax deduction

If you give € 400 as a private individual (or sole proprietorship), you can claim € 400 x 1.25 = € 500 as a deduction. With a tax percentage of 50%, you will receive € 250 back from the Tax and Customs Administration. So you actually only spend € 150 on the donation (€ 400 – € 250). 

Even if you give a smaller amount, the benefit is considerable. With a donation of €100, the deduction is €125 (€100 x 1.25) and the tax benefit is €65, so you actually pay €35.

Conditions for tax deduction for donation:
To be eligible for a tax deduction for your donation, a few conditions apply: 

  1. The organization to whom you give the gift must be a cultural ANBI, such as Sounds for freedom.

  • In the case of a regular (one-off) donation, you must take into account the threshold amount. This is 1% of the aggregate income of yourself and your partner, if any, but at least €60. You can find an explanation here.
    This threshold does not apply to a periodic donation for at least five years. This donation can be recorded in a simple form, which can be downloaded here.

For regular donations, there is a maximum based on your income. You are not allowed to deduct more than 10% of your aggregate income from ordinary donations.
