Become a donor to Privacy First

To carry out its day-to-day operations and litigation, Privacy First depends entirely on donations and grants.

With your support you help a small team of hardworking people who diligently protect the autonomy and privacy of every Dutch citizen. We conduct thorough research, organize events, build coalitions, maintain a network of volunteers and stakeholders and influence politics. If necessary, we take legal action.

If you, as an organization, also value your own choices in a free society, become a corporate donor or partner and support the mission of the Privacy First Foundation. We are an independent foundation with the important goal of preserving and promoting the right to privacy. This also fits with Corporate Social Responsibility!

Donations are used for research into important topics to clarify developments, to determine positions and to conduct lobbying activities about which we then publish.

You can easily donate using the form above. Prefer to donate directly? You can donate to IBAN NL95 ABNA 0495 527 521 in the name of Stichting Privacy First (Privacy First Foundation).

Privacy First has ANBI status which allows donors to deduct their donation from income or corporate tax.

Both regular, periodic and corporate gifts or donations are taks deductible, but there are different conditions, however. About the difference between these two types of donations, you can read on the website of the Dutch Tax Office..

In brief:
- If you make a gift or donation to Privacy First Foundation for at least 5 years which is recorded with a periodic donation deed (also called periodic donation agreement), you will get a portion back from the tax authorities. How much? That depends on your age and income (or first read more about how that works) and calculate with this free tool your tax benefit.
- Ordinary donations are also deductible in your income tax return, but a threshold and a maximum apply. You can read more about this at the website of the Inland Revenue.
- Companies can deduct their donation in business through corporate income tax. The amount of gift deduction cannot exceed 50% of profits and must remain below €100,000. Also, the tax deduction must not make the profit negative.

Many Dutch people make donations or lay down in their will which charitable causes their assets will go after their death. If you want to leave money or assets to Privacy First, you can record this in a will. A self-written document is not officially valid. Bequests can be made in two different ways.

An inheritance allows you to name Privacy First as sole or joint heir. As a joint heir, Privacy First receives a percentage of the estate. The amount of the percentage is up to you. Privacy First shares the inheritance with your other heirs. Is Privacy First the sole heir then Privacy First receives the entire estate.

A bequest is a defined portion of your estate, for example, a painting, house, securities portfolio, a fixed amount of money, or a certain percentage of your assets. This is a good option if you want to document very precisely what you want to give to Privacy First.

No inheritance tax
Privacy First pays no inheritance tax because it has ANBI status. The will determined thus fully benefits our work of Privacy First. The notary will specify what information should be included in the will.

Drawing up
Bequests to one or more charities can only be made through a will made by an official notarial document. A codicil (your own handwritten statement) is not sufficient. The notary advises on the possibilities and records the last will in a notarial deed. A will has no legal force until the testator and the notary have signed the will.
