When you sign a contract for a periodical gift (minimum of 5 years), you are allowed to deduce this gift from taxes for 100-125%. Example: with a yearly gift of 1000 euro, this will cost you net 350 euro if you pay 52% income taxes. Read more about the benefits of periodical gifts.
Do you want to donate a substantial amount to the Dutch National Opera and give a very personal goal to that, then creating a fund in your name is an interesting possibility. A fund as a gift for or as a remembrance to a loved one is also a possibility. Read more about named funds.
