Transnational Giving Europe

Transnational Giving Europe is the only practical solution at European level for tax-effective cross-border cash donations.

How TGE works
Donors can give their gifts to the national TGE partner that will transfer the gift to the foreign beneficiary and provide all the national fiscal advantages to the donor. Thanks to TGE, fundraising organizations can ensure income tax deductible gifts for their foreign donors and launch tax efficient fundraising campaigns in other TGE countries.

In 2015, 350 prestigious organizations and 5,000 donors used TGE. In the last year alone, 12 million EUR was channeled through TGE (+ 37 % compared to 2013). This confirms the growing trend of cross-border giving within Europe.
