The fiscal aspects of donating

When you become a member of the Tiger Film Mecenaat, your donation will be used entirely for the benefit of filmmakers’ projects by the Hubert Bals Fund. This is because, due to its ANBI status the festival is not liable for donation tax. If the donation is periodic (for at least five years) then it is fully tax deductible. If your income is in the Dutch 51.75% tax bracket, a €2,500 donation will effectively only cost you € 1,206. If you opt for a €10,000 Hubert Bals Fund Fellowship, your net donation will amount to €4,825 if you are in the 51.75% tax bracket.

You do not have to have your donation recorded by a notary public. This can be effected much more easily using an agreement drawn up by the festival.

If you have any questions concerning the Tiger Film Mecenaat or entering into an agreement, feel free to contact Lotte Hemme by calling +31 (0)10 890 90 90 or send an email to [email protected].
