VATAHA is a public benefit corporation (Algemeen nut beogende instelling; ANBI), and more specifically, a cultural ANBI. An institution can only be an ANBI if it dedicates itself almost entirely to the common good. As an ANBI, donors may deduct their donations from their income or their corporate taxes.

An additional gift deduction applies to donors of cultural ANBIs. Individuals may multiply a gift to a cultural ANBI by 1.25 in their income tax return and deduct it as a gift. Companies subject to corporate income tax may deduct 1.5 times the amount of such a gift in their corporate income tax return.

To be eligible for the deduction of periodic gifts, the donor and the ANBI must record the gift in an agreement.

Ultimately, your donation not only supports a common good cause but also provides a tax benefit for yourself.
