Europe

The Development Office is very pleased to announce that we are now able to accept tax-efficient donations from various European countries, thanks to new partnerships developed between various European foundations to enable cross-border donations. The TGE (TransGivingEurope) network enables organisations to accept tax efficient donations in other countries, without having to set up branches or sister organisations for that sole purpose or having to master different national systems of law.

At the moment, only a limited number of countries have signed up to this agreement, but the aim is that more will do so in the future. The foundations in both France and Switzerland should be operational very soon, while progress is being made by the Giving in Europe partnership to extend it to Italy, Spain, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria.

The procedure for making a tax-efficient donation works as follows: the donor makes a gift to the Foundation in his or her country, which will then transfer the gift to Caius through its partner foundation in the UK, the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Any tax benefits can be claimed by the donor in his or her country of residence and will be sorted out by the relevant Foundation.

The countries listed below have a Foundation that accepts gifts for Caius. Donors need to contact the Foundation in their country for information on how to make the gift. The staff in the Foundations are experts in the tax laws of their countries, and can advise donors on the level of tax-efficiency that is available.

This scheme is managed by our Development Officer, Caughlin Ryder. Her email is foundation@cai.cam.ac.uk and her direct line is 00 44 (0) 1223 339 574. She will be very happy to help with any queries.
