Corporate Giving

Amare is the ultimate cultural centre for The Hague, the Netherlands and even Europe. A unique house for the arts, events, education and cultural encounter. With four halls, a convention centre, eight lobbies, multiple public areas and two restaurants, Amare has no peer in the Netherlands. In order to fulfil its ambitions, Amare is looking for Corporate Partners. Discover the ways in which your business can support Amare: 

Tax benefits

Supporting Amare can be financially favourable, as your donation entitles you to a tax benefit. An ANBI (public benefit institution) is exempt from gift tax. Your donation is therefore deductible from your income or corporate tax. A donation to a cultural ANBI may be increased by 25%. The deductible amount depends on the type of gift and on your personal tax rate. 

Ordinary donation
For ordinary donations, the deductible amount is subject to a threshold and a ceiling. The threshold amount is 1% of your total taxable income. This threshold must first be subtracted from your donation (increased by 25%). The remaining amount can be deducted from your income tax, to a maximum amount of 10% of your income. 

Periodic donation
You receive a higher tax benefit if you conclude a periodic donation agreement for at least five years. You can deduct this donation from your income tax annually, without a threshold or ceiling amount. It means that a periodic donation can be deducted for 125% from your tax income.

Calculation example for an ordinary donation of 750 (with a threshold amount of 350):

  • € 750  x 125% = € 937.50  is the total amount of your donation
  • € 937.50 - 350* = € 587.50 is the tax deductible amount
  • € 587.50 x 36.97* = € 217.20 is your tax benefit
  • € 750 - € 217 = € 533 is the net cost of your donation

Calculation example for a periodic donation of € 750:

  • € 750 x 125% = € 937.50 is the tax deductible amount
  • € 937.50 x 36.97%* = € 346.59 is your tax benefit
  • € 750 - € 346.59 = € 403 is the net cost of your donation
