any amount, big or small, is welcome

How you can help

Multi-year sponsorship

Every donation, big or small, helps us to secure a better future for the children. Multi-year donations enable us to safeguard the continuity of our organisation so that the children can build a real life for themselves. Our status as a non-profit organisation means that donations qualify for favourable tax treatment in the Netherlands. Donations are exempted from endowment and inheritance tax, and multi-year donations are fully tax deductible for Dutch residents.

If you would like to support us for a period of at least five years, please read the attached document (information on tax benefits and donation proxy - all in Dutch).

If you prefer to donate to a specific project, you may be more interested in one of the care packages or investment options described below. In that case just drop us a message with your preference.

Of course we welcome any donations made to our bankaccount IBAN: NL95ABNA0592137678 (account name: Stichting Happy Watoto).
