Transnational Giving Europe (TGE)
Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) enables donors residing in participating countries to support charitable organisations in other member countries, while benefiting directly from the tax advantages provided for in the legislation of their country of residence.
Currently Belgium, Ireland, UK, Hungary, Italy, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Slovinia, Romania, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Poland participate in this scheme and both the donor and beneficiary need to be based within this group of countries.

For a donor wanting to use TGE
A donor residing in one of the participating countries that wishes to make a gift to a public interest organisation in one of the other Member States can contact the Foundation in the country of his/her residence. The home foundation establishes contact with the Foundation in the recipient country for an assessment of the intended beneficiary (which is another non-profit organisation). If the evaluation is positive, the donor makes the gift to his home-country foundation which then provides the donor with a tax receipt and transfers the gift to the beneficiary organisation.
