Giving from Europe

If you are a European resident, you may be able to maximise your gift through Transnational Giving Europe (TGE).

What is Transnational Giving (TGE)?

Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) is a collaborative giving scheme offered by a partnership of European foundations. It enables donors resident in one of the participating countries to offer financial support to non-profit organisations in other member countries.

The countries which allow you to donate through Transnational Giving are: Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Spain, and the UK.

There is a map on the TGE website which highlights all of the countries that are covered, and which can direct you to a page where you can find out more about the partner organisation that TGE works with in your country.

How to give through TGE

A step-by-step guide to giving through TGE:

  1. Contact the relevant TGE partner organisation in your country
  2. The organisation will give you details on how to give (donation forms, etc)
  3. The TGE partner in your country will transfer the donation to us, minus a fee
  4. In February of the year following the donation (or sooner if you request it), you will receive a donation certificate which will allow you to benefit from any tax deduction allowed under the laws of your country
