Fixed-term charitable donations

Would you like to offer Dutch National Opera more structural support? If you make your donation over at least a five-year period and sign a donation agreement to that effect, your gift will be completely deductible from your taxable income.

Tax advantages

  • You donate a fixed amount for a minimum of 5 consecutive years
  • The minimum yearly amount is €250
  • You sign a donation agreement for this fixed-term charitable gift
  • This fixed-term charitable gift stops automatically in the event of your demise


For instance:  you earn €50.000 a year and are in a 42% tax bracket.  You would like to make an annual donation of €250 to Dutch National Opera.  The amount is less than the 1% minimum of your gross income, and normally not tax deductible, unless you sign a donation agreement.  Your net donation is just €119 a year, and you receive €131 back from the tax department.

With the gift calculator or schenkcalculator, you can easily work out just how much your donation costs and how much benefit you’ll receive.

Donation agreement

All you need to do is send us a fully filled out donation agreement, together with a copy of your passport or driver’s license.  We will take care of the rest.
